Exclamation FS-95V Front Bearing Discontinued

I have torn down my 95V and had in mind to replace the bearings. I have since learned that the front bearing, OS40931000 is discontinued. Is there a new part number or is this bearing just gone? The bearings are made by NTN, perhaps there is an alternate NTN part number that would be a suitable replacement. Fortunately, my front bearing isn't too bad so it could be reused but I'd prefer to replace it while I'm here.

If I can't find a known replacement, I may head over to the local bearing shop and have them measure to see if they can find an alternative. If it comes to that, I'll report that back here. Thanks.

Thanks, Iíve got a good bearing source but I need a non-OS part number to know what to order. The bearing has 4546 printed on it so Iím going to start there unless someone has a specific part number.

Smile Solved

My local bearing shop measured up the original bearings and replaced them with:

Front Bearing: Shuster R6-2RS
Main Bearing: SKF 16002

Total cost: $29.50 for both. Some sites had the front bearing alone listed at $30+.
