And if they don't have what you need at the hardware store, look up electrical motor/alternator rebuild places in your area. I have one across the street from my work that specializes in rebuilding power tools.

If you have a problem finding what you need, PM me and I'll walk over there next week and see if they have what you need based on your model number.
