Clean the crud off of them and read the bearing numbers. Can't tell anything looking at the picture.
Also, does the parts manual show the bearing numbers. W-I is pretty good about putting the bearing numbers on their parts list.

I don't know if I have the right manual but I can't see where it says which bearings to use there

Well, try to go together with the way you them installed. Either it will work or not work. Try to measure the bearing bores where this goes in the assembly and check against the bearing OD. They should match. If not, try to match the correct bearing to it's correct bore.

Wells Index sells a manual, it is not the greatest but it is mainly technical drawings and part numbers, that is what I used when I redid a 745 some years ago. The drawings help a lot. The drawings in the manual cover several mills so make sure you look at right ones. Good luck it was a fun but sometimes challenging experience, information is not that easy to come up with.

I do have the manual but it is like greek to me. I did get the bearings figured out.
Now I am having trouble with the spindle shaft cone bearings. The manual is hard to read.
I wonder if there is more than one manual. The one I have is a reprint. Someone wrote on the front of it
"Master Copy"

Ok I am stuck again. I can't seem to get the downfeed handle release back together. The holder [pick 3] that holds the little
saddle is drilled offset. It will not thread in because it is at an angle.
Has anyone dealt with this?IMG_1786.JPGIMG_1787.JPGIMG_1788.JPGIMG_1789.JPG

Wish I could help you out there. If you don't get a response here, get a hold of W-I and I bet they will be glad to help you out.
I wonder if you have to put that in place before installing the shifting fork?

Jimbo762 did a very nice video taking it apart but doesn't show it going back together.
