We recently got a call from a customer who had found the bearing he needed for a GE motor that he was repairing by searching for the GE part number – 540001. His search led him to our cross reference page where he found that the complete number was 34B540001-G01. That crossed over to our babbitt-lined sleeve bearing WS09691 SS. We had the four bearings that he needed in stock and shipped them out to him the same day.
He called back to say he also needed the oil (or slinger) rings for the bearings. Checking our records we found that we did not have that information in our inventory description. (BTW we do now!) So we went back to our print files and found that GE part number 34A770006-P02 was specified for 3.00″ shafts which matched the WS09691 SS. We sent our WR084-08 rings and our customer was back in operation.
