    OS Rear Bearings Wanted

    I'm trying to locate rear bearings for a :
    OS 60 FSR
    and a:
    OS 46 VR
    There's not a bearing house in Australia that lists bearings for these engines
    From memory Boca Bearings can't help either.

    HELP!....lol

    RE: OS Rear Bearings Wanted

    Hi

    If you have pulled the bearings, check the number on the bearing and do a google search, these bearings are still available.

    RE: OS Rear Bearings Wanted

    Here's the old OS part number for the rear bearing in the old O.S. Max .61 FSR: 26730109.

    For the .46 VR series: 25330003.

    Both parts have been discontinued by O.S. quite a long time ago. The only way to find replacement bearings would be to use a good-quality caliper to measure the old ones and then order new ones with identical dimensions. Some of the after-market bearing distributors specialize in helping modelers find new bearings.

    RE: OS Rear Bearings Wanted

    Thanks Bill
    I kinda knew I'd get that answer but was worth asking anyway.
    Isn't it frustrating to you to know thhat over the years, OS and other manufacturers have used mognrel sized rear bearings
    in some of their engines while the front bearing is a standard size readily available anywhere.
    The arlier OS H40 was another one with odd sized rear bearing in it.

    Cheers

    Fredo
