Older Lewmar Traveler Car

Does anyone know where to find the roller bearings for the older lewmar mainsheet traveler cars. I love how rugged they are compared to the new torlon ball bearing ones which turn into eggs after awhile and can't handle any dirt at all. I had to use 2 of the 8 to rebuild 6 bearings on my car. Who could possibly stock the old parts? Please don't tell me look at Lewmar and insult me. I did try that first. Thanks.

Re: Older Lewmar Traveler Car

A ball bearing is, pretty much, a ball bearing. Get a set of verniers and measure one...
