Rear wheel bearings

Anybody sourced a replacement for the rear wheel bearings? I don't have any good ones and need to find something suitable.

Re: Rear wheel bearings

Hi Shane-does your old bearing have a tapered inner race? If so it is the same as on my Model 60. The only place I have been able to source this bearing was a long time ago from Olcar Bearing Co. in North Carolina. He has no web site but his telelphone number is 910-693-3324. His name is George Bachleda. I also have a copy of an "The Old Partsman" article that covers an alternative bearing that a fellow Australian found. I can scan it and send it to you if you would like.

Re: Rear wheel bearings

Hi Shane,
Rear wheel bearings are available from AA Bearings in Melbourne, He had them in stock last year when I got mine, front and rear, reasonable price too. They advertise in restored cars.
On a side note, I'm chasing for my spare W5 engine oil pan, side covers, front timing cover, front pulley, oil pick up and flywheel, and manifold if anyone has one spare.
