C11 Front/rear wheel bearings
« on: November 24, 2008, 05:12:39 PM »
The front wheels on my 1950 and 1953 C11s have the loose ball bearings (which, of course, have gone missing) and I'd like to change them to sealed bearings?  Can someone give me some Timken or other aftermarket bearing numbers for such a change?
 
Also does someone have the numbers for aftermarket (Timken?) bearings for the two sealed bearings in the rear wheel of a '53 C11?
 
Thanks
Jack

My '48 C11 has 20" wheels with cup and cone bearings. The first time I replaced the front ones, I took up the play, as you do, but then they seized after a short while. I could get any more new ones, but I did find some Norton ones at an auto jumble that were almost the same. This time I left a bit of play, and they have served me 10 years+ so far. Every time I take it for an MOT they pick me up on the play in the front wheel, so I tell them there has to be play with cup and cone bearings. They always except that, so either I'm right, or they haven't got a clue either!

I do have a part number for tapered roller bearing that will fit the front wheel for the later C10,C11, and early C10L,C11G.
 
the part number  for the bearings are 119590 - 119520.
 
the shaft will have to be linishd a little as the bearings fit on the threaded ends ok but too tight for the normal dia, also the radiused end of the cones needs to be cut off if you want to use them for adjustment.
 
A good place to get them and other bits is from is Revolution Seals and bearings at
Unit J,
Houndswood Gate,
Harper Lane,
Radlett,

C10Stiles,
    Do you know the brand name for those bearing part numbers?  Perhaps I can find them in the USA.
   Thanks
Jack

Thanks for the information.  I'll see if I can find the bearings in the U.S.

C10Stiles:
I've been unable to find the A&S Fersa bearings (119590 & 119520) in the USA and Revolution Seals and Bearings say they don't recognize those part numbers.  Is that they way you ordered them?

Looks like I have made a bit of a boob as it is looking like my c12 has got a c11 plunger rear hub on the rebuilt wheel by the configuration of the bearings 1 large and 1 small and its looking like the c12 hub takes two the same size so if that's the case I apologise to the e bay seller
