Craftsman 4x36 belt/disc sander idler drum sleeve bearing part number

I have a Craftsman 4x36 belt/disc sander model #113.226431. The belt no longer tracks and regardless of how it is tightened, the belt wanders (away from the disc side). I've disassembled the tension assembly and found the sleeve bearing on one side of the idler drum (part 65 on the diagram) is worn paper-thin. It has significant play on the shaft. I need to know what part to order to replace the sleeve bearing as it is not listed as a separate part. My guess is that the sleeve bearing is pressed into the idler drum and I'd need to order the whole drum for this repair but I'd like confirmation of this before I order. Thanks.

Thank you for your question on the parts for the 4X36 belt and disc sander.

You are correct in that the bearing was pressed into the idler pulley. You may also want to replace the idler shaft as well.

It is unlikely that you will be able to get these replacement parts for your sander because the replacement parts stock is almost gone.

I will give you the parts information but be aware you may not be able to get them.

They stopped building these products in 1998 and most the replacement parts stock has been depleted.

You may want to consider a new model sander.
