You installed the fan by pushing it onto the alt. shaft. This is a no no.
As a result you broke the brush and cracked the rear bearing support.
Both need to be replaced.

The proper way to install the fan is to use the alt. fan nut to "drive"
on the fan. If you push/pound the fan on, the alt. rotor will slide
in the alt. front bearing damaging both of the above.
