I’m sure most of you know this, but I saw post today that made me think about doing this post.
Bearings, for the most part are in common sizes. The best way to find a replacement is to measure it with a micrometer. Measure the I.D., O.D., and thickness or width. You want to measure in inches and millimeters both. A lot of bearings are made in metric sizes, even though they work out to an inch equivalent. Once you get your measurements, call or find a local bearing house and they should be able to help you out.
One other thing you can run into is proprietary bearings which are specifically made for that particular application. Those bearing usually have to be bought from the dealer.

I hope this helps, Brian
