  • AMC 20hd axle bearings (revival)

    I'm sorry to revive this thread ( http://www.ifsja.org/ubb/ultimatebb....=025313#000000 ), but I'm currently haveing a big problem with this. The parts stores here claim that there never was a full size AMC 20. All thier computers show is the Dana 44. I can't find bearings / races for my 81 Cherokee Chief AMC 20. Does anyone have a actual bearing number, or, Stuka, can you expound on what you mean that I need rear bearings for an M23? I'm in dire need of help, and I really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    When I had to replace a shaft a year or so ago, NAPA pulled it right up. Don't have a # off the top of my head. Was not the tapered orig, but a squared off relacement. You need a new parts store or counter person. I can get the part # Monday morning if it would help.

      I would really appreciate it. O'Reilly had something like you are talking about, a kit, not bearing and race, and not tapered. I thought they were wrong because the OE is tapered. Why would anyone want to change from the tapered set? I would really appreciate it if you could get me a part number.

      P.S. for some reason the Napa in our town closed down about a year ago.

      Thanks.

        I'll put it up here sometime tommorrow depending on work load. With the non-tapered unit all I did was pull the old tapered race and pop in the shaft/bearing. No probs yet.

          Did you do it yourself or have someone press them on. I was thinking about just tapping them on with a piece of tubing but the parts store guy told me that I'd cause the bearing to fail. I don't think I would if I didn't act like a gorilla with a sledge.

          After reading your sig, I figure you just pressed them on at work.

            Just got off the phone with NAPA, their part # is BR-10, said it show from 74-83 and then fro 86-up as the same. He looked at one and it was tapered with race. I had out alignment shop press it on as we don't have a press here. If your s/n and location are what I think, one of the guys at the motor pool would do it for a six pack Hope this helps you out. They should be able to cross reference it.

              Thanks a lot. As for the motor pool, it's very sad right now (just the reservists have access to it). However, my Battalion just went M-TOE and will soon be receiving all our vehicles and mechanics and such. But, hopefully I'll have it done by then.

              Thanks again!
