just checking: rear wheel bearing: 9" 196x F100

i took my axles down to napa to get new bearing pressed on. guy said application? 60's something f100. he found the BIN number on the axle: F208AKK. said it's obsolete, no reference, couldn't help me. went home, poured over FTE threads. i am quite sure i have a Big Ford (Old style) axle. the F208AKK, should translate to a D8AZ-1225-C and that bearing is used on many cars/trucks up to about 1979. when i punch in a est. 1962 Ford f100 to napa online (i know i have the narrower brakes and i saw the donor) it seems to check and napa lists BRG 88128R (the pricier one) with seals: 2.5" OD, 1.5" ID. I'm going to a diiff napa (with its own machine shop) and try again. am i on the right track? my local napa is usually good, but i didn't recog the guy there today. thanks for reading. dick r.

I think you're on the right track. I don't believe for a minute those bearings are obsolete and are not available anywhere. They were used for too long on too many things to be gone from the face of the earth. Keep looking.

Brakes got wider in 1968 on the F100. So if you have narrow brakes like the originals were, it's older than that, if that helps narrow your search.

I'm confused by the statement: "he found the BIN number on the axle" The BIN would be on the bearing itself. At any rate, nothing obsolete about the bearings for those axles. Is it the sealed style or the tapered 2-piece?

ross, sloppy wording on my part, the BIN is on the bearing. it has the sealed type bearing, not the two piece.

So many times a person at the auto parts store says something that is incorrect or gives you the wrong parts.

Find a different person who "really" knows what they are talking about, even if they are in the same store.

Clueless!

bill, thanks for the confirmation. it was your posts i was gathering information from. i should have asked for another counterperson. our local napa is normally good. i'm going north for a dr. appt, i'll go to the napa in saratoga springs NY (home of the famous thorobred track). the saratoga napa has a machine shop attached. i didn't expect a prob yesterday, i could have done the reseach before. since i didn't know the year, only the style of the donor, i looked up the napa part for 1961 to 1967 F100 and got the same bearing number napa: BRG 88128R . Thanks, Bill and all the pros at the FTE parts counter. dick r.

success. dropped off axles at saratoga napa. machine shop guy agreed napa 88128R bearing ($41.99 + $20 to remove/replace per axle). he needed to get the bearing from their other store. went off to do a couple errands and had coffee and some excellent pumpkin cake baked donuts at FTE'r "joe in malta" home. when i was leaving, got the call, axle done. picked them up, home for lunch. a great morning. just wondering, what kind of quality can you expect from their cheaper bearing ~$18 (china, i assume). throw in materials, shipping, mark up seems like that would be more than $18 to begin with. dick r.

LOL, did he have to get it from the store you went to yesterday?! Sounds like a good morning!

I have the same axles/bearing (it's from a '70, tho??) and made the same choice as you. For the cost of R&R, you want the best quality, and that isn't a chinese $18 bearing. The $42 bearing may also be from china, but it's in a Timken box, makes all the difference.

not the same napa group as yesterday. i could have gone back to my local one, but their machine shop is in another location, adds travel time. at saratoga, the shop is one door (indoors) from one to the other. it was a great morning. dick
