3HP 3PH 240/480V motor for milling machine.

Motor shaft seems to have strange lateral play, but not significant end play.

And it shifts back and forth with a characteristic clunk sound, much different then any worn bearing I've heard before. And the motor runs nice and smooth and quiet. Please help me identify the problem here if you might be so kind! Thanks!
