Hi I thought I would come pick the brains out here.......Sure you will have all sorts of advice so here goes Onboard I have Koopnautic Stabilizers. The bearings are used in the stabilizer rams. I have been putting new Maintenance Free Radial Spherical Bearings and ran short of the bearing in my spares, order them I thought. After chasing this bearing up, I hear that SKF are not manufacturing a batch of this specific bearing till December 08...which is out of the question as we are outta the yard in 2 months. I tried to cross the part numbers with another manufacturere which is INA from Germany, I received the bearing from the bearing supplier here in Florida(He cross ref them with the original SKF bearing that I was looking for) So I thought it would be all good. However when i tried to fit the bearing in they do not fit there is about 0.01mm interference in the fit on the pin for the id of the bearing and same with the OD which should slip nicely into the Stablizer Ram.....with the help of some locktie(All specs the same from SKF to the cross part INA bearing) This leaves me in a dire situation. Does anyone have any ideas?? The SKF bearing number is GE25TXE-2LS and the INA bearing number is GE25-UK-2RS Any ideas on how to find these hard to find SKF bearings?? I am in U.S.A....Maybe chase suppliers in Europe??? Anyway any input would be appreciated?
