excessive end play in motor on craftsman model 919165300

The motor seems to have excessive end play. This movement sdeems to cause the counter balance to hit the piston rod causing it to break after a sort time.


I have broken 3 rebuild kits.

Is there a thrust washer in the motor that may be worn out causing this to happen?

How much, exactly, is the endplay?

Are you getting the right parts (looks like there may be a couple)? From where?

I'm not sure what you mean by counter balance - you mean the eccentric bearing, or something else? (hence, the pic request).
