Default Looking for bearing source or number

Hey guys, I'm looking for a source to get the rear thrust bearing that goes behind the planetaries. I would like to get them from a bearing supply or such rather than one of the trans places. If anyone has a source or at least a brand name with part number I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, I have bearing places here also. What I don't have is a number for the bearings. We have been using old stock bearings that were still good and they don't have a number of any kind on them. That is my dilemma. I want to stop using the old factory bearings but don't have a number to cross with.

When I get in that situation, I just take an example in to our local bearing house and they measure it with calipers, get into their bearing interchange books and come up with what I want.

yes sir.... they did that on our 12ft tub grinder bearings.... the ones we were getting though company that built the machine weren't even lasting a year. they had no part numbers on them so i took one up to the old guy at buffalo bearing and about 20min later i had all new bearings..... 3 years later and still going :wink:
