I think that might be a special bearing made for Ariens only and available only through them. I had to replace one and all other searches took me in circles. Designed by New Holland, might be available through there dealers also.

I guess I'll have to pull one out of the extra rear end I have setting in the shed and check it out. I can't see spending $100 for one from Ariens.
I see some sites list it as a Bearing and Cone Assembly which would lead me to believe its a tapered roller bearing. Which would be better than a standard ball bearing as long as there's a way to push the race into the housing after the bearing is on the axle.

Bill, I was wondering who else used this bearing? I have to replace the other side and I always get sticker shock at the dealer when I order parts.

Thanks Bill. I didn't realize it was used in such a variety of equipment. I assumed that it was a New Holland designed special.

I received my 2 new bearings a few days ago. After finishing the rebuild on my 60" deck and finishing mowing the lawn, I decided to take apart the right rear axle.
1st I noticed was the hub was loose
2nd the race is a slip fit in the axle tube
3rd the cone looks as though it has spun on the axle
4th it had 2 gaskets on it
When ahead and ordered 2 gaskets and 2 felt seals, if I decide the left side needs to come apart.
Now to decide if I should use the axle/s out of one of my other rear ends or the whole rear end. Most likely, loctite bearing retainer and use the original/s.

after looking at the old 74-75 repair manual, the bearing, axle, housing, and brake caliper mounting plate. I see no reason why we couldn't assemble it the old way.
press the bearing on the axle with the cone taper out, put the axle in, then put the race in
that would position the axle out a little bit further, somewhere around 0.050" less than 1/16", but it would also make a little more room for the felt seal between the hub and caliper mounting plate
