Center support bearing assembly
« on: September 06, 2017, 08:52:46 AM »
Anyone know the best place to buy a complete center support  assembly (carrier bearing)? They are $200+ everywhere, except antiquecadillacparts.net which has an entire assembly for $145 (Chinese bearing..) and caddy sells just the assembly minus bearing for $95, bearings anther $70 or so.

Where are you guys ordering from?

I have them new (revulcanized) with a new Timken bearing installed.   They are 195.00 with a 100.00 core charge. 

I send mine off to steele rubber to be redone. I get them back without a bearing, and I install a new bearing.

I just ordered one from rubber the right way. It looks good enough but I haven't installed it yet.

I ended up ordering one from caddy daddy. Going to reuse my current bearing.

I would recommend that you change the bearing, as your halfway there. TIMKEN part # X908CC
