Hello,

 

I have a 66 ford 100 garden tractor with a bad closed end needle bearing for the reverse gear box, i called messicks and they didn't have one, does anyone know the size of the needle bearing that goes in there or the number of the bearing?

 

thanks

Is that a Peerless gear box? If so, there should be lots of sources for parts. If not you should be able to take it to a bearing supplier and have them measure it for you and try to come up with a replacement.

See if your old bearing has a number stamped in it.  It may be tiny on a needle bearing outer race, but they are usually there.  Use that number to cross it, Napa is good about getting bearings for me based on the industry number.

Hello , and thanks for the welcome

 

This is the closed end needle bearing that i need. I've taken the bearing to a company called bearing service and they say they needed a number to cross reference it, I gave them the number from the parts manual to them and nothing came up.

 

i tried 3 local bearing companies and nothing.

The bearing you need shouldn't be a problem to get. It is a drawn cup closed end needle bearing with or without a seal on the open end. You want a bearing without a seal I beleive. It will likely be a metric and you need to measure the outside diameter with a micrometer. Also measure the width of the cup overall. If possible measure the shaft diameter it goes on. These dimensions at any proper bearing supplier should be all you need. Take the old bearing with you. It could be ordered online to I would think. Good luck.

Alley Katz has it correct. Any bearing shop should be able to source it from the dimensions and style alone.

 

If they can't be bothered, find another shop or look on line.

 

I've managed to source some pretty obscure bearings and seals that way.

Metric bearing, on a 66? Not saying that it is impossible, butI find that hard to believe.

Use a digital, or dial caliper, and measure inner race, outer race, and width. Wah lah.

I'm sorry they are giving you a run around. This shouldn't be difficult. Old Jac part numbers may not mean anything to the bearing manufacturer. I just looked up simular bearings from 2 well known bearing manufacturers and they are very available in both metric and inch sizes. If you could get the dimensions of the bearings it would be easy to tell you the part number you need to order. I could even send you a PDF file of the bearing catalog if it would help.

That catalog might be nice to have in the Manuals section.

Kenny - I uploaded the "NSK Needle Roller Bearing" catalog under "Misc. Manuals". It is a technical catalog that takes considerable reading to figure out what you want. The drawn cup bearings are metric on page B46 and inch on page B64. I hope this helps someone and isn't more hurt than help. Good luck.

Hello,

 

The number from the old cup bearing is Torrington MJH-11101 (15/16" OD,11/16" ID,5/8" Width) used a magnifying glass on the worn out very small number.Motion industries said that bearing isn't made anymore.I'll keep looking for something that will work.
