Well this ain't good

Recommended Posts


I noticed tonight that one of my rockshaft bearings is broken.

Simplicity used these flange bearings with a key on them. According to Jack's they're NLA. Any reason why I couldn't just use regular flange bearings that don't have the key on them? I know the bearing will rotate, but can't see what it would hurt that much. Does anyone know of a place that has keyed flange bearings?

Thanks guys. I searched a lot of sites, and couldn't find them. The only place I found that had keyed ones like that only carries up to a 3/4" bore, and I need 1".

Obviously somebody makes them, since Simplicity bought them from somebody, but danged if I can find it.

I just ordered non-keyed ones. I'll try drilling a hole going through the edge of the flange and the steel plate, and putting an expansion pin in there.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
