You are correct. Part number 903373 is the part that is used in the video. Thank you for your suggestion on mentioning part numbers in the videos. I will pass it on.
Question: Porter Cable Model 332 Type 2
My sander stopped working under load. It only works upside down and you need to bang it to get it started. A repair person said it might be the bearings and brushes, as well as possibly the armature. It would have cost too much for him to do a complete diagnosis. Does anybody have any ideas? They don't manufacture this sander anymore and it's the best sander I've used, though it's 15 years old.
Reply: Sanding Pad
Originally the Porter Cable 332 came with a 13900 Pad it is used for adhesive backed 5" sand paper with no holes. If you would like to use hook & loop (velcro) sander paper you will want to get the 13904 Pad. Though it has the five vacuum holes, it will work just fine with the 332 sander.
Hope this helps,
My sander fell off of my workbench to the floor. I had just used it and it was working just fine. I took it apart, it didn't seem like there was problem inside. Could the switch be broken internally? All of the outlets work fine. I plug it in and nothing. I did just change bearings about a month ago.

I have had this unit for many years and it has served me well. It is far and away the best sander ever built. If you want to remove material this the one to have. It is much better than the newer one's. I have finally had to replace the pad, but short of that, it just keeps going. if you have a type 1, don't let it go.
