Carrier Bearing

On my 1977 Morgan OI 41 there is a carrier bearing about 2/3 up the shaft mounted to the hull. Question does anyone know of a part# or any info on this bearing. I am replacing my cutlass bearing and installing a new prop. This bearing seems to also need attention. I have been unable to find any info as of today. Thanks in advance BOB

Re: Carrier bearing

These are called pilot bearings, and take the "whip" out of the shaft.

McMaster-Carr have them.

Re: Carrier bearing

Bob, Look at the bearing from VXB with the part number ucf207-20. This is the bearing that I understand to be the appropriate replacement for the "carrier" bearing on my 1973 Morgan OI. Compare the photo of my bearing with yours:

'hope this helps!

Re: Carrier Bearing

......some additional information in referrence to my post above. The photo is the original bearing on the 1973 Morgan and the VXB bearing is a similar replacement application for the 1 & 1/4 inch shaft. On the VXB web site you will see two ucf207-20 bearings. One is Code kit7359 that sells for about $10 and the other is Code kit 11520 that sells for about $34. The bearings are described by VXB as identical, but the less expensive bearing is manufactured in China and the more expensive bearing is Japanese.

Re: Carrier Bearing

Thanks everyone. I found the bearing and am waiting on delivery. I found the A207 under some crud. They list it as a flange bearing. Cost 72.00

Yes a standard four bolt flange bearing that is probably available in stainless steel for use in the food industry but for a lot more money.
