Brian, Sorry, I don't have a p/n for the flanged bearings. I got them at Bearings, Belts and Chains in Phoenix. There web site is: http://www.bbcarizona.com/

I took one of my Vintage Kart wheels in and sort of checked them out before purchasing them. Give them a call and maybe you can get a part number or order from them.

Lowell, those die cast hubs have about twice the coefficient of expansion as
does the steel bearing. Simply heat up the hub with the wife's hair dryer and
the bearing will drop right in. Works the same in reverse if you need to replace them.
That way you won't shave any aluminum off the bore installing or removing them.
Don't forget the BB9903 brgs. on ebay or Amazon Brian. They must have been on
sale on Amazon when I bought them cuz I paid $2.79 each so I picked up a dozen
for spares and postage was only $4.72 which added 40 cents to each one.
The supplier was Midwest Industrial Equipment Co. in Ohio.
And I'd like to add that flanged bearing number to my reference file also Lowell.
Can't come up with anything at VXB and they usually have dang near everything

Saw these on Amazon, $4 each, if ya got Prime no shipping. For that kind of money,
I'll give them try even if they are wheel barrow bearings.

To late now.....I already pushed the button, but here they are for $1.99 directly from Marathon.
My sixteen bucks would have bought enough for two karts.

Hi Lowell

There should be a bearing number imprinted on the rubber seal of your flanged bearings, might take a magnifying glass or a macro lens to see it.

Cheers, Ted

Ted, I will try to see the P/N. The bearings are on mounted wheels and the light isn't very good in the garage. I'll try to pull the trailer out into the sunshine in the next couple of days and see if I can see anything.
