Thank you so much Steen,  I didn’t realize they were dissimilar metals.  I did not heat the case to remove the bearing and just tapped it out gently with hammer and bearing remover,  could that have caused this?  It is a SwedeTech motor and I emailed them about what happened and what to do but I am currently waiting on a response from them.  Would heating just the sleeve area with a torch work, or does it have to be an oven?  I was only replacing the Main bearing and don’t want to cook the current bearings for the trans shafts.  One company I spoke with recommended just replacing the case but the $1000 for a case is my entire yearly racing budget so I need to keep things affordable.
