Default front engine bearing

my lhs has a front engine bearing that has the excact dimensions and o.s. and ninja/nova. The only thing is it is shielded on both sides. Now i have ordered tko's but due to some problems i will not get those for another week minimum.

It's a duratrax bearing and that does not have me thrilled But my question is, could i just take one of the rubber shields off?? and is this a good bearing?


would this be ok for a couple weeks?

It is the only engine bearing in that size within 80 miles of my house

gonna get it anyway. It's only 10$ and the owner said it did not matter if it was shielded on both sides, and i could take one of the shields off if i wanted.


still would like another opinion.

I would leave it Dreaux. I actually leave both seals in an effort to keep things dry. Oil is going to pass through the seal regardless it is not like the bearing will be run dry.

The TKO ceramic front bearings will also have
two seals. Peter at TKO said it was best to
install the bearing with both seals on it.

that only makes sense if you think about it. Another barrier for air and dirt. Also i got the duratrax bearing in my hand. Which by the way is made by the same company as o.s. stuff= great plains. Now it's almost identical except the inner metal ring is not as thick (by a decent margine) as the o.s. bearing.

should i worry bout this? bout to instal it now.

when i heat the block up, do i put the rear bearing on the crank to insert it after i put the front one in?

Use the crank to put the front in as well since the block is hot. Once you put it in let it sit for about 5 - 10 seconds, and the block will grab the bearing. Then stick the rear in with the crank like you stated.
