Default 1923 Samson 3/4 ton flat bed front wheel bearings

I need the front wheel bearing for my 1923 Samson Truck.

Does anyone knows where I can them?
I can not find any replacement parts for any vehicle older than 1947.

I can't help with Sampson truck in particular but any part numbers or measurments will help alot as I am sure something more modern will interchange if it is a roller bearing.IF it is ball bearing,replacement balls are available if I aint bad mistaken.Photos and such help as well.

On your wheel bearings, as mentioned above, look for a number or number-letter stamped on one; if you find one a bearing co will be able to tell you what's available to replace it...
As to NOS (New Old Stock--leftover new OE parts never sold in their time) or NORS (leftover parts by replacement parts Co's) parts in general, Google antique or vintage auto or truck parts and numerous outfits will show up that deal in such parts....many also deal in usable used parts...
A fair list is on the Vendors and Restoration Services section of justoldtrucks.com
Hey, Wait----Samson trucks/tractors were Billy Durants jab at ford when he ran GM; it's possible they used a lot of Chev parts since they used Chev engines in the trucks...It's quite possible they used Chev parts...
That's assuming you do have Samson and not Campson...

Thanks, I have Googled numerous vintage auto and truck parts vendors and restoration services and they all tell me the same thing; "We don't have anything older than 1947,(nothing that old) and do'nt know have any idea who would be able to help."
I do have numbers stamped on bearing races, but I need a company or supplier to work with. I will try justoldtrucks.com
I'm assuming that most likely used Chevy since Samson was owned by Chevy in 1923.
I hope I am on the right track. Thank you for your help. I have hit too many "DEAD ENDS"
