I need a part # for the stearing shaft bearing and cone. It is right below the spring below the stearing wheel. I have been hearing a grinding sound for a while. I pulled the stearing wheel yesterday in the 73 degree heat and pulled the spring out. The cone is almost gone and the bearing cage is broke. I went to SASCO web site and they want part #'s. Need to get this fixed before spring. If it evr gets here.

Looks like what you call a "cone" is actually part of the steering column "jacket". At least that's what the book says. The bearing is #195809

Mr B is correct on the bearing number. There is also a seat for the spring that appears in the parts book to be cone shaped. Is that what you're referring to? It is part number 192414. Neither show up as being available from SASCO. If you can read the manufacturer's number on the bearing, a good FLAPS can probably cross the number to whatever brand they carry. You can probably get a used seat from one of the vendors who part out Studes. In fact, they might sell you a whole column for less than you'll pay for the bearing alone.

I wonder if that jacket comes with the bearing. The one I have is worn totally out. If I get the bearing I could make a jacket. I have a small machine shop in the basement. Just have to figure the radius of the bearing. Thanks Mr Biggs I don't think I will make it to May to get one in South Bend.

The part # Mr. Biggs gave you is correct. I'm looking at a 1955 E Series parts book and it is still the same. It should be a one piece needle type bearing and according to my service manual should come out of the jacket with a minimum of effort. Was there a seat under the spring & on top of the bearing when you took it out? Part #192414.

The bearing looks a whole lot like a bicycle fork bearing it has ball bearing. And what is left of a washer with a cone that fits around the shaft and supposedly rode on the bearing. But the cage of the bearing is broken. But the balls had not fell to the bottom. I reterived them all with a magnet. I wish all steering wheels was easy to pull as that 49.

According to the parts book, the bearing does come with the jacket. There are four different choices in my 55 parts book. For an E12 with 3 speed it is part #679236P.
