Dimensions of NRS Rear Axle Bearings?

Post by JHAYNES » Sun Dec 30, 2018 8:12 pm

Gentlemen:
I am looking for some information about the dimensions Rear Axle Bearings for NRS cars. I bought at an auction several years ago a box of parts from a Gentlemen that had a auction in Spearfish, SD. He have a huge collection of early Fords among many others. In that box were two new rear axle Hyatt bearings which I originally thought were Model T. However these are smaller. He had them made in Germany. They resemble the reproduction rear axle bearings for a Model T. There is no spiral just solid steel. Could someone please let me know what the dimensions of the NRS rear axle bearings? I would like to find a home for these as they are not use to me, if these are not NRS then it is off to plan B. These are 3.93 inches tall, (the same as a Model T); diameter of the roller cage is 1.929 about .040 smaller than a Model T; each roller is .437 which is .63 smaller than a T. I would appreciate any help in this regard.
Wishing you all a Prosperous and Happy New Year!
John Haynes

John, The bearings- the outside round ends are 2" outside and 1 1/8" inside. The ends are the same for both small and large. The rollers for both bearings are 1/2" diameter. The center to center dimension (going across) on the ends for the rollers is 1 5/8" for both bearings. The only difference between the two is the length of the rollers. The small is 2 3/16" and the large is 3 3/16" long.
With the exception of the lenght, the dimensions are the same as the T bearing. If you have any questions, or some of this is not clear, let me know.
