Front Wheel Bearings
« on: 19 Jul 21, 08:03 pm »
I have for sale new No4 off SKF 6003-2RSH sealed ball bearing 17mm x 35mm x 10mm, these cost £26.39 but will take £15.00 plus postage.

Perfect for front wheel bearings.  These should have been 37mm o/d, but they sent the smaller size and no longer list 37mm o/d,  so are now surplus.

Contact Me via a private message for further details.

Clive,  6003 have been 35 mm forever. I'm pretty sure Chris will pop his useful information for you. Jim has made  sleeves from 37 to 35 mm. Not all of us have access to lathes.
We must avoid torturing our brains with false problems, it occupies but it can annoy. In jest!

I have a lathe but i think i would struggle to make a 10m long sleeve 35mm ID and a wall thickness of just 1mm. I would like to know the technique.

For those poor souls who don't have access to a lathe I can only suggest you get your wallet out and buy one. Then you'll be able to experience the beautiful joy of turning and you can smell of suds all day.
For the bearing sleeves I used some stainless tube about 40mm long that was 38 o/d and 35 i/d. I made a bung to fit in the end to stop the chuck jaws crushing the tube while holding it. I turned the o/d to size and then parted off.

I only mentioned that I have these for sale, I know they are 35mn dia and I ordered 37mm dia these where sent as a substitute. I already have a lathe and milling machine and I am in the process of marching the hub to take 40mm bearings.

So back to the top of the thread bearings for sale, £15.00 plus postage.
