well I found a few things out after a little more investigating. I asked about greasing because the driveshaft was floating around inside the holder, and I saw bearings, and
after looking at parts, discovered the seals are pretty well gone.
Anyone that saw the thread back when I joined the forum, asking about this "mysterious"
bearing that I found laying inside the flywheel when I removed my stator, I now suspect
it was one of these bearings that was inside of the driveshaft holder, and when I removed the shaft, the flywheel being magnetized, grabbed one. I cannot say conclusively that this is what happen, but I wanted to share it for all the advice that was given to me on that. Thanks again, you guys are the best.
