No, we do not interchange mounted bearing inserts with spherical outside diameters due to the following reasons:
  • Anti-rotation rivet differences between manufacturers (load slots could be on the locking side or non locking side of housing)
  • Potential fit up issues when replacing bearings in housings (might be loose or too tight, customer likely won't know a bad fit and that could impact performance)
  • Relubrication feature differences between manufacturers (lubrication groove could be on the outer or housing, on lock side or non lock side, etc)
