Default Porter Cable 7518

I bought a used 7518 with the knowledge that it might need brushes and/or bearings. Checked on prices which are not bad. I have two questions.
1. How do you remove the collet retainer(part on end of shaft) to be able to remove the bearing?
2. The brushes are only contacting the commutator half way as if the armature was not pressed on the shaft all the way, about a 1/4". Any ideas on repairing this?
