Question Ariens 10,000 Impeller Bearing Worn ?

I have an Ariens 10,000 series. I suspect the impeller bearing needs replacement. I can see that the impeller has a slight wobble to it, and at low engine speed I can hear an intermittent scraping noise. I have tried to see if there is any play in the impeller and shaft buy trying to wiggle it buy hand, (with machine shut off) but I feel no play at all. How best to determine this ?

Disconnect the lovejoy coupling that drives the impeller, reach in with the belt guard off and lift up and down and if bearing is gone will move up and down.
