Modet T front axle bearing have not been available from Timkin for quite a while now. They assure us that they are coming but will not comit to a delivery date. They are low on Timkins production list. So be patience or find some good used ones.

Glen, the ones listed in Lang's catalog are Timken. Are they not shipping them, or just have for sale what they have in stock?

Note also that Lang's sells a Timken facsimile for half the cost of the Timkens. Not sure what the history on these is but I bought a set. It'll be a while before I'm running them, so hopefully someone else can provide performance comments.

Scott, just installed the chinese ones that Lang's sells today. They are of good quality, with one exception. They do not have the flat spot on the bearing that the Timkens do that allow them to be tightened onto the spindle arm with a wrench. So, the work around is to use vice grips on the chinese ones. No problem... installed without issue...

Good deal Michael. Sure like to hear how these hold-up for you...sounds like Timken's lack of timeliness may have created an opportunity for a competitor.
Regards,
Scott Rosenthal
