May be able to reuse the rotor if it doesnít have any damage to the surfaces. All the rebuilds I have watched (Iím rolling my eyes at myself at this point) they have actually put in new bearings in the rotor and use a special tool (I donít know how to describe it other than like an espresso tamp but for a bearing). Have no idea about the other stuff though. I think as long as the e shaft isnít bent or super scratched, I would use it, but I havenít ever rebuilt a motor 😂

Are you sure all the other parts are within the tolerance?

Measure everything, and then decide if you just want to get a reman. You could put everything back together and still use that engine as a core.
