Hi! I have acquired a Norton Front hub with a double leading shoe front brake, but no wheel bearings or axle are present. Does anyone have a bearing number ( or dimensions for interchange) that might be available at a local (US) bearing supplier? Otherwise a suggested source mail order? Since I am out in the sticks, my local tractor shop has been really good at cross referencing odd bearings/bushings. Any info/ideas appreciated!!!

Thanks!

Bearing numbers are
6203 17 X 40 X 12 Single Row Deep groove Ball
4203 17 X 40 X 16 Double Row Deep Groove Ball
The single row is easily found in sealed, but not the double row. There is a slightly wider sealed double row that requires the bearing spacer to be machined first.

Hi & thanks for the info!
I do not have the internal spacer either, so I may have to make both an axle & internal piece. I like the idea of going to the wider shielded bearing.

Thanks again!!!

BT -
I have fitted the wider bearing by trimming the spacer myself. Just so you fully understand, the wider bearing is simply wider, not any stronger. The only advantage is in availability.

You'll want to spec all your wheel bearings as "double sealed" NOT "shielded". There's a big difference between the 2.

The 3 bearings in the rear wheel are in an inch size (if I remember correctly), but can still be had "sealed".
