    Front Wheel Bearingsknow

    I'm planning on replacing the front wheel bearings on my BT7 when I install new hubs and discs. I've had some issues with China made bearings in the past and would feel better with SKF bearings. Does anyone know the SKF numbers for both inner and outer bearings and races and the oil seal? Or have other had good luck with another brand?

    IN most cases bearings are made to the number that appears on the bearing all bearing manufacturers may not make it but most main line vendors may if the item has broad usage ..

    So search the bearing's number you may come up with a better brand.

    FYI - Just got some SKF bearings for a BMW 320i. They were made in Brazil.

    I have a BJ8 and your front bearings may be different, but this is what I got when I changed bearings in 2002:
    Inner bearing: SKF CK-LM67048 (Germany)
    Outer bearing: SKF 11949 (Mexico)

    The markings on the oil seals: NAK SC 2.062 2.875 0.375

    Info from previous bearings, removed in 2002:

    I see from Moss, the bearings for the wire wheel 6 cyl cars are the same with the exception of the late BJ8 outer.
