Bearing size?

5 posts in this topic

What's the best way to measure the size of your bearing for replacement? Thank!

Fishinfrenzy, The ABSOLUTE BEST way is to get the number off the side of the bearing and match it that way. Otherwise, take the inner and outer races and measure them with a caliper (or even a micrometer). If your origional isn't all ground to shavings, there's a bearing number (usually a letter and 5 digits) printed on the edge of the outer race. You may need to use a magnifying glass to read it clearly. Give that # to your parts man and you should get the correct replacement. Phred52

I just brought the blown bearing into northern hydraulic and they did the caliper measurements there.
