Where can I get a quality roller bearing for my T? I read on here some were substandard to the point of being dangerous.

Next time you go to a swapmeet, bring a micrometer with you.

Robert:

New Ford rollers mic'ed out at .500"

New Ford Pinion bearing rollers at .562"

Bearing rollers with.005 wear are generally acceptable to most.

I'm in Nova Scotia, used parts, especially good used are very hard to come by. Unfortunatly, the distance also means I won't be coming to Chickasha.

I toss them if they're worn to smaller than .498" or if they have loose cages. A loose cage will allow the rollers to urn at a slight angleon the axle, causing undue wear. Remember that the undersize of the individual roller actually shows up as double the play between the bearing and the axle. So, a bearing with .005' wear will give you .010" up and down play on the axle in the housing. Add in a little wear on the axle itself and you'll soon have great plenty of "slop".

Robert:

I'll check the bearings I have in the garage tomorrow. Do you need all 4 or just 2 ?? The vendors sell the correct bearing sleeves for about $ 18.00 each. They are made to Ford specs.

Bob, I only need two, Someone absconded with them before I got the rear end so they could put them in an earlier rear end, so it came with inners, no outers. And it did come with new sleeves installed.

Don't know about the West German bearings. But, for some info on the currently available drive shaft rollers, read the following;
