I picked up a load of T parts today and in a box of Hyatt axle bearings I found this mini Hyatt bearing. What might this have been used in? PK
Model A Water pump.
There are two much like that in the lay gear in a Moore accessory transmission.
Allan from down under.
I think Model A's used a similar bearing at the front of the driveshaft?
The front drive shaft bearing is a bit bigger and is too long for the water pump. I would say without having it in hand it one of the Model A transmission cluster gear bearings by the size.

This guy had a pile of A stuff along with all the T stuff. That could be the answer. Thanks, PK.
It could also be the bearing for the sliding gear shaft where it rides in the imput shaft.
Those Hyatt bearings, of various sizes, were used in auxiliary transmissions such as Rocky Mountain six speed. Typically for the counter shaft (cluster) gear. I sense that it is called the *lay gear* in Australia.
The 1919 Hyatt roller bearing catalog which lists only this type of bearing ( as above and Model T d/s and axle) has 53 listings per page and 15+ pages. Must be just a start on the types they ultimately made.
Possibility a display for dealers?
Hyatt made bearings for thousands of applications, as Layden suggests. No telling what that one was for.
