Question: Porter Cable 7539 Router
How do I tell the difference between Type 1 through Type 5 routers for correct parts ordering? By picture alone I'm guessing I have a Type 5, but I want to be positive when I order parts. Thanks.

The type number should be in fine print on the same tag you got the model number.Without that you will have a difficult time knowing the difference.Type number are used it show any changes on the model that was made while the model was in production.The only way without a type number is to go through each parts list and note the different part number.Hope that helps.Good luck.

To replace the N031634 brush you will have to remove the cover item number 52A, part number A15259. Then pull back the 698872 spring, that is holding the old brush in. Remove the screw that is holding the brush lead in the brush holder. Then reverse what you have done. And you should be good to go.
Question: Change Chuck
How do you change out the chuck on Model 7539 chuck item number 698807 ?:confused:
Reply: Change Chuck
The chuck threads directly onto the end of the armature. It can sometimes become very tight with use of the router. You will most likely have to remove the armature to get a good enough grip on it to remove the chuck.

Hey old hippy,
Is it the brush's you need to replace..? if you remove the top cover[4 screws], you can gain access to the brush's for replacement..if it is the bearings you need to replace..that is probably one for the repair center to do..there is a certain degree of difficulty for those..
hope this helps..
your fellow old hippie...:)
