Spindle Bearings ? ? ?

Doc Green
If it got hot enough to cook the motor from the outside, that's some serious hot. So the question is, was it hot enough to bake the grease out of the spindle bearings? You will certainly have to put a new belt on it, which requires removing the spindle, so changing the bearings while the spindle is out should not be a big deal.
