Bearing Experts? - Need help with axle bearings

The Dana 60 I am putting in my rig has timken set10 outer axle bearings. As best I can find this is most commonly used in semifloat axles like the dana 44. The problem is that the bearings, seals and axles are brand new and I lost one of the races...

In looking around I find that all the set10 bearings are a unit bearing type and the race/bearing is integrated. The set I have has a separate race that slides in the axle tube and the bearing itself presses on the shaft. I called timken with part numbers and they tell me the race I have in my hand is part of a unit bearing, but it is not.

I bought another set10 bearing to get the race and that is when I found out about the two types because it was a UB. The funny thing is that they both have the part number on the race of U360L. Timken said that was part of the assembly U399.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, guys. I will call up Bohls, and will do some hunting on a10.

Purvis was my first stop when the auto parts stores could not help. Purvis could not find the race separate...may have just gotten a lazy parts guy not wanting to dig.

Yes, it is. It is the old mopar size bearing I think; 2.875 tube end. If you have one, I am a buyer.

On another note I did find out that Mosier has a sealed bearing option that is like a big ford bearing, but in the mopar size. And the guy at mosier said the set10 bearings typically are a unit, but that they will separate once loaded and the race will stay in the housing....kindof wierd I thought.

This is for a sf 60 if I remember correct, that is why it uses the oddball bearings.

Oh. Ok. Those bearings I listed were for full float.

All u have to do though is get the number off the bearing/race and search it. Regardless of brand or origin the specs are the same.

Eg. Right now I need some new bearings for a compressor. I just searched and the 4 digit number and found them on amazon. They are listed as a tranny bearing. But don't matter as long as u buy the same style in that bearing. Style can be sealed, shielded, open ect.

SKF should have some online PDFs that u can look up bearings.

Yes, it is a semi float 60, and that is why it has the smaller outer bearings. It is the same bearings used in semi float Dana 44's as well as mopar muscle cars that got the D60 back in the day.

I have searched the numbers and even talked to timken directly. The issue is that the bearings and races are only sold with the bearings as a unit. What I have learned is that once installed they will separate, but I tryed to separate them in a vice and some light tapping and had no luck.

I did find that orielly listed a nation brand bearing race for a dana 44 axle housing. They ordered one and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will work. If not, I will just take it to a shop and have the bearings swapped out. I wish I had a press, but I dont.

Can you take these specs to a bearing supply house and have them match you up?

I wanted to post a quick update. I clamped the new set20 in a vice and tryed harder to separate the race from the bearing. After a few good smacks with a punch it popped apart. So, for future readers, it can be separated from a new bearing set but you can not buy a race separate from what I found.
