Many thanks. It does have a huge bearing in the plastic bracket. I'll make a metal end bell for it.
Do you think the shaft would be accurately centered wrt the motor case? If yes that would make machining the endcap more simple.
If I can get it to work, the pump motor is nice as it was cheap (cheaper than the last car starter I bought), and a shunt motor. As a shunt motor it'll spin a constant speed, great for a lawn tractor that had a constant speed gas motor, and no need for a controller.
