They are no longer made.If you´re lucky you may find someone who has some originals in stock.Glyco is a good alternative though.

O.K. I will check this out, the glycos appear also a very good choice, we run them on our drag car with no problems although there is a slight diffrenece in the tolarances between them and the others, if I'm not mistaking they gave in general more tolerance than the others which was more favorable for our application, but problem is you have to have all the bearings available to decide which one to use, we had mahle, ks and glyco and the glyco was the one with the biggest tolerance so we decided to go with this but probably this is a unique case, maybe this is not a rule for the glycos I couldn' tell

Yes,the Glycos are steel backed.Dimtirios is right about the tolerances,however, cases also have tolerances,especially if the case is a used case.

I will never use anything else other than double thrust cam bearings.Jake Raby sells them and they are made of steel.Excellent quality.You can order them with DLC coating also.
