A "GOOD" parts guy should be able to find it going off the number on the bearing. A "REALLY GOOD" parts guy should be able to find it going off the dimensions of the bearing with no numbers. The problem is, most stores have gone to strictly a computer based system, and if they can't find it there, thay are completely lost. My suggestion is to keep trying the parts stores until you find the right parts guy. Good Luck! Dave

go to a bearing supply. the number stamped on the bearing is all they need.

Going to parts stores for racecar parts is a racers nightmare. I went for some dowel pins that go in the block to keep the head in place. The parts guy said they didn't have them and went on to tell me how to align the head with a pipe. I told him he was crazy and he said racers do it all the time. I just shook my head and walked out.

I have worked in parts stores through parts of my life, and I originally started because I couldn't get anyone that knew what the heck they was talking about. Oddly enough, after over 20 years that is one thing in racing that hasn't changed, they still have no clue. That is a good number that you have, I believe it is a BCA number so most stores should be able to interchange it. Whether or not the counterperson can is another story. If not take the bearing with you or at least the measuremnts and tell them a 70 torino, if that isn't the right one tell them a 74 galaxie. I can't remember the right one but one of those two should get you what you need. If not post it here that it didn't work and I will call a guy and find out for you. Good luck.
