Anyone with info concerning matching up a thrust bearing to fit the C7NN7548M relubeable bearing assembly used on some Ford Industrial Derivatives including the 4500? Stupid, Stupid money from CNH for the assembly. Looking for a way out for a customer with a junk bearing. Thanks in advance. Rick

You could try crossing the CNH part number to a Timkin part.

Can you convert it to a standard bearing? Unless this tractor is used hard every day, I bet a standard bearing would last this customer a long time, or at least as long as the clutch.

Situation got dumped in my lap about 15 minutes before closing yesterday. I figured the best after-hours help was right here. The CNH part number is for the entire sleeve & assembly, not likely to cross to anything. Will look into finding a manufacturer's number on the thrust bearing itself, if there is enough left of it. And how many parts need to be swapped to put a sealed bearing in there.

Without looking at the parts catalog myself, I suspect the only different parts would be the bearing and the sleeve, and possibly the fork.

If the new assembly is that pricey to where the owner is hesitating, I'd send him to a wrecking yard to find some good used standard parts, along with a new sealed bearing.

I've only worked on a few of those in my career, and don't ever recall having to replace one, so I am no help on the cross over.

No clear path to swap sealed bearing in with different carrier. Can't tell for sure without the parts in hand. Might work with disc & plate on order from Hy Capacity, might not. $600 release bearing is included in a $508 reman CNH Clutch Kit. Of course the kit has a 10 spline clutch disc & I need a 15. Ordering the kit to use the reman release bearing and will stock the disc & plate for other uses. CNH sure knows where to get those bearings if they have them in that kit. Good thing a parts guy doesn't have to account for his time like a service tech.

Today's Featured Article - What Oil Should I Use? - by Francis Robinson. I keep seein this question pop up over and over again in discussion groups all over the web. As with many things there are often several right answers and a few wrong ones. Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ? Some of them only bring their noses down out of the air long enough to look down them anyway. If you are like me you are only doing this old tractor stuff because you enjoy it. You ...
