hi, on my 2007 elan with Lewmar constellation (believe from research) steering the bearing (?) at the front (black) exposed to the elements is looking fairly worn on its front face and Id like to replace....

But I cant find it identified in any lewmar material, or obviously in google searches...anyone figured out a suitable replacement?

As best I can make out, if has the following written on it: 2.000 0.250N NX

Charlie,

Given your location I would approach Cliff Mogridge at Winch Servicing who is the local expert. He fitted the wheel steering to my Moody for me. Tricky to get hold of because he always seems to be busy but worth persevering.

I found a pic I took a few years ago... looks like this might just be a seal in front of the bearing...Click image for larger version

Looks like those numbers might be inside diameter, outside diameter and thickness. Found a website selling similar parts will give a try. https://budgetbearings.co.uk/shop/Seals/c19/index.html

Re: Lewmar steering bearing? Replacement?

Any chance you could give more info on the replacement part? Size, material, source? I have the same part and issue and am not having any luck finding parts and it's so corroded I'm not sure of the dimensions or construction. I tried Winch Servicing but the web site is down - looks like perhaps permanently.
