Does anyone know if there is a "needle bearing" style of pilot bearing to use in place of the bronze bushings? If so, I need the part # and who supplies it! Using a big input [1 3/8"] Thanks in advance! DYNO 427

is the ball bearing unit I run. It is sealed, I have 5 seasons on the one and it's still like new. Fits FE.

Locate any bearing distributor you have locally. Should be on the shelf anywhere.

Aside question? Can bearings be in different widths?

I was wondering about using a short input toploader either with truck bell FE or in a small block - can those bearings be found wider? Or is if best to cut a bronze Bushing for that is deeper?

To an extent...

but likely a very limited differences in widths can be found/made. Being ball bearings, there is space limitations as to bearing dimensions compared to ball size. You might find one 1/8" wider, but not much more? That would take a call to your local bearing house and see what they have.
