Im just trying get hold of a front spherical bearing for a PRST4 and the only real option is this, the bottom one on the jpg as ive only just realised the top one is slightly out according GSBs technical info on the first page of thread!

Image

Would this suffice? it wont be abused!
Or, has anyone got a genuine whyte one i could purchase from them??!

Thx

Are you in the Uk?

If you want a Rolls Royce solution, to do it once, do it properly, and forget all about it;

https://maydayseals.co.uk/spherical-bea ... aring.html

If you want a proven solution that’s not Rolls Royce, but still a good bet;

https://www.autosport-bearings.co.uk/pr ... 10-5mm-hw/

If you want a cheap low quality bearing with a decent sized mark up;

Ask Whyte...

I’ll let you into a secret, it’s all cut and paste from earlier in this thread. (Page 6 IIRC)

Yes, here's my own cut and paste, just for completeness..." I've bought an IKO PB10. My last one had become very noisy but had a groove worn around it. I'll keep it properly greased this time. It was £18 from BRT bearings. They have a few shops including in Chorley."
Didn't Whyte originally fit IKO bearings?
