    I have a Sta-Rite vertical deep well pump that sounds like the bearings may be going bad. Is this something I can do myself? I have worked on and replaced bearings on similar motors in the past but not on a working well pump. I do as much DIY stuff as I can to save money and I don't readily have hundreds of dollars to have a company come out and do this.

    It is just like any small motor. If you have replaced bearings and seals in a motor before, you are one up on most people. :)

    Can the motor be removed from the well simply by removing the two bolts underneath the flange? Will it lift right off? Is there anything I need to be aware of when removing it? As I mentioned earlier, I have worked on similar motors, just not one on a well. Thanks for any input.

    The two bolts are just for the casing adapter. The first section with 4 bolts is usually where the motor and impeller come off.
