Just a very quick one - if you'll excuse the phrase chaps....... Starting a technical 'how-we-did-it' semi technical easily read and understood photographic essay for the forum relating to the mechanics, theory and practicalities of wheel bearings. It seems from reading zillions of back pages on the technical forum that there's a lot of cra........., er......... fuzzy logic doing the rounds on what is a relatively technical but what should be a relatively easily understood subject for a competent home mechanic.

The Question is this. Anyone out there in forumland quickly give us the TIMKEN part numbers for the taper/cup and cone bearing AND the standard ball/race bearing for the S and standard Cooper. It just saves me stripping mine down!

I've done a few write ups on front tapered rollers, here's one;- http://www.theminiforum.co.uk/forums/to ... -bearings/ miht be of some help to you with your right up.

The Parts Numbers for the Tapered Rollers are as follows;-

Fronts LM67049A, Assembly 91033 (when I used to order via the bearing supplier, I only ordered by p/n LM76049A)
Rears 07087X, Assembly 49644

Timken didn't manufacture Ball Roller type Bearings and so they never supplied them. I don't think I even have a bearing manufacturer's number on them.

The front Wheel Bearing Assembly in Minis is actually a Metric Bearing :shock:

I only specified TIMKENS as a known quality product Spider. But will quote SKF rollers if you have that number. Regards and Happy New Year to all you wild colonials out there. Pete the Pom

Cheers Pete :)

Same to you and your family mate.

I found an SKF Part No. of VKBA 749 for the fronts, but that was for a kit, which includes seals and a pin.

Ball Roller Bearings on their own are a little elusive these days. I'll keep digging to see what I might be able to find. I'm bound to have an old listing. The Ball Rollers were not something I fitted too often.

Just an FYI and you may well already know that the Tapered Roller and Ball Roller Bearings are dimensionally the same and 100% interchangeable.

Spider. Does that mean I could have the benefits of the roller bearings by fitting them to a standard Cooper/drum brake front set up?

Not a good idea as it becomes impossible to remove the drive flange if the inner of the bearing grabs hold of the shaft.

If it does its sledgehammer time!

Yes you can nd the point raised by Rich is a good one though cab & does happen with balls too, A tit with a grinder sorts it easy enough.
