Im looking for a pair of older steel bearing birdcages for a 3" axle tube. The older 1 piece steel tube/snout type. These are a bit dated, and I havnt seen any in use for while. I know Olsens had them as well as older Troyer 4-links.
I would like a pair if anyone has any around..

Widebody I have a friend that has an older Olsen with those birdcages on it. Are you in a hurry for them I mean a week or two? I'll check for you. I'm working out of town this week but will be back next week. Like I said I'm positive it has them and are in good shape.

Anything to help!

hey widebody I have a set that came off my older 90 olsen car. They have one bearing inside two aluminum plates bolted together. I can try and get a picture of them for you.

They need to be all steel, and definetly need to be the 3" ID. I have the newer style ones, the modular bicknell aluminium ones. Not in any hurry, got all winter, just dont want to wait untill feb to start looking for parts..

The one I remember seeing had a name on it like "A-1" or something like that.

Im also looking for a broken inboard starter bellhousing, need it for my engine builders dyno, cheaper the better, its only going to get cut up. These new oil pans wont clear a starter, for use on the old setup..

Also looking for a BERT tranny cheap; need it for parts, broken input or tail is OK.
Thanks guys;
