What's needed on this board is a "Travelers to No. America Cooperative" with the end goal of having people carry parts across the sea.

For the record, my bearing mounts are a bit worse than one on the photo (photo from volvoxc90site):



In other threads (were you thinking I'm waiting to be spoon-fed the answers?) I've found out:

There's a claim that currently there is no decent (read OEM) quality bearing mounts on the market.

And if one actually needs some, it's only Lemforder or Sachs.

Or best- regrease, repaint, reuse old ones.

Thing is.. I think mine are past reusability.

I've found few options from both manufacturers on eBay, as soon as I have access to VIDA, I'll double check part numbers..

Shown in my video here and at 12.50 each, it makes no sense to me to refurbish worn bearings.

Only a couple of months but everything is fine so far.
Corteco are part of a multi billion dollar company so not some fly by night who will put their name on any old tut.

Look at Parts in Motion's eBay store for deals.
They are competitive and fast.

3 - 4 years ago I replaced mine with Febi parts from Andrew Paige - still going strong, no issues.
