I needed to replace the taper roller head bearings in my racer and my bearing supplier told me that the cones are no longer available with 1.062″ inner diameter. I tried the SOC Spares scheme. They had none and had been asked for them several times. Does anybody know of the existance of a cache. Perhaps the Spares Scheme would be interested if so. If not and if anyone is really desperate, then it is possible to get a set with an identical outer cup and inner cone, except the cone will have a smaller bore that would have to be ground out.
This is to advise that we can supply new taper roller head bearing sets on request. Kind Regards Roger Moss
FAG, (no I ‘aint got shares!), do one that is 35 x 47 x 7 (No. 71807-B-TVH). I know it looks on the light side but surely in this application it’d do? On the up side there is no grinding required just sleeves to be made. FAG do another in the same range with a 55mm O.D. that can be had with seals and if memory serves the outer ring will pop off so holding for grinding and cleaning grinding debris off afterwards would be no problem but the question is could it stand 1mm/side off?
On balance I think I’d go with the smaller size and look how much weight you’ll be saving! . . .
