Thanks much.  Now I kind of have an idea what to look for when I get into mine.  Don't know the numbers of mine as I can't read them any more.  Tag is about gone completely from being outside for 10 years or more.  I found a manual but it is for the newer style.

Hi I have replaced these bearings in the past on my tube frame blower. I am in the process of replacing a set on an eliminator snowcaster which I think may be the same bearings just the flange is different. They are common bearings. The bearing is the only piece you really need. The outer flange can be removed from the old bearing and reused unless you had to destroy them to get it apart which sometimes happens.  I am researching the part numbers. I can post here when I find them or feel free to send me a PM.

Got the bearing 1185898 and flange interchanged and now stock them.

I will probably sell them as a set like Bolens originally did.

These ones are an upgrade over the originals and have a grease fitting on them for extended life, should outlast the originals by far!
