Default Rear Axle Bearings

Looking for part numbers on the drive axle bearings on a 1978 FCRB33, inner / outer. Anyone have part numbers or suggestions?

Yes, fully aware of how to do that

My issue is I have to have the parts in-hand for the local repair shop to do the work, as when they tear it down they won't have time or space to have it sit waiting on parts. And if I don't have the parts in hand, they won't tear it down / start. And I don't have jacks under mine, nor a place / etc to jack it up myself (otherwise, i would have already done the above).

Yes and when you supply the wrong parts or numbers,,,,,,well you get the idea. Need to find a capable repair facility by the sounds of it.

Thanks Mike. Hopefully someone that has replaced these on the earlier rigs can chime in with a part number.

OK,just wondering how you know you need bearings if you have not had them out?
The factory bearings are Timkens,you can't get any better than that.
Those big bearings running in oil almost never go bad.

Here is the 78 FC manual from the files on the forum. Looks like there are part numbers for the wheel bearings, but there were 3 axles to choose from.

I don't know that they need to be replaced, but since I don't have any maintenance history on the rig, and since I'm having the brakes done I would rather be prepared and have the parts on-hand in case they need to be replaced.

Ryan,
Unfortunately, you’re at the wrong shop. What if you get the right bearings and it needs something else? Now your problem has been magnified. I had a front axle leak, so I went to a place that worked on big rigs. After opening it up, the guy just went in the supply room and came out with the new parts. You’re not saving anything by going to a place ill equipped to handle a unforeseen problem outside of the bearings. Unless it’s one of the guys on this forum doing it, find a place that works every day on charter buses, dump trucks and 16 wheelers. It may cost you a few dollars more, but it will be worth the piece of mind.
