    The discussion was about repair bearings for GM 14bsf. I understand, that repair bearings are new. Who can tell me; if they are more types (repair levels), how do I know what type I need? Where I can find this bearings? Is necessary to make a renewal to the axle shafts?:1zhelp:
    Thank you anticipatory!

    O.K.! I find that site and I have two problems:
    1. Why the repair bearings have different I.D. & O.D.? Original: I.D. 1.7055", O.D. 2.9920". Repair: I.D. 1.7080, O.D. 3.0880".!!! What is the secret?!:confused:
    2. They don't sell to international!!!:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Can't tell you on the outside, (although IMO that's pretty small diff) my measurements on the inside were just .008" off from the number you post for the repair bearing.

    If it's made for the 14SF, I'd go with it.

    You might have to make a post to see if anyone will buy you parts stateside and send them to you. I'd offer if I weren't on the same side of the Atlantic as you. So far I've not found anything over here that might sell what you need.

    They wrote on the site, it is for 9.5" ring. I understand, the 9.5" ring, is 14bsf.
    It is? If it is, that's OK.
    I think, you have right, about the way to buy it.

    Yes, 14SF uses a 9.5" ring gear. :)
