Steering Column Bearings


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if steering column bearings are still available for B models? I have a friend restoring one now and he need to replace the bearings in the steering column. I believe they are called radial / thrust (or axial) bearings. Here is a pic...


The ID is 1.00" and the OD is 1.665". There are no markings on the bearing. When I made a new column for my Dad's 361 Brockway, the bearings were NICE 515. They have the same ID but our OD was 2.00"

Any help would be appreciated!

Strange size on the OD. Is the OD tapered? Hard to tell by the picture. I've got a complete column/box sitting in the garage, came with my truck and basically have it as a spare if the need ever arose. Is that bearing in the top? I suppose the steering wheel presses down and keeps tension on it?
