Hi. its been a while, I am glad you are still here. Anyway, I am stripping down an Ideal Model R 1.5 hp engine, my question is the roller bearings, I have never seen rollers quite like these, they have shoulders inboard, (i did read this was for reducing side play). I havent pressed them off the crank yet but I dont see any numbers anywhere. Does anyone know what these are and if there is a modern cross reference? Thank you.

Hi there, not quite sure what you mean by shoulders inboard but could they be flanged bearings? I’ve seen these used on a crank before.

Here is a hand drawn side view of this thing, I have never seen anything like it. I got the race out of the iron cap but no numbers there, I still need to press the bearing off the crank to check that for numbers.

You can't link things from Gmail. Put it somewhere like Imgur and use one of the share links.

I struggle with this site every time. I did it again the right way I think.

Hmm yeah pretty unusual, unless it has been completely deformed. Looks like it’s designed to take some axial and loading so i’m sure a cylindrical taper roller would be a suitable replacement for it.
