Default Exact size of novak's "oversized" bearing?

Had a bearing finally wear out in a 5.5 novak and have already replaced it with a new endbell kit. I have since removed the bearing out of the old endbell with the hope of replacing it for a backup. Anybody know the exact dimensions on the oversized endbell bearing?

You don't need calipers. These bearings are standard sizes. You could measure it with a ruler graduated in 1/16th of an inch and come close enough to get the correct replacement.

If you check your original oversized bearing, you'll see R3Z marked (mine had) on the metal shield of the bearing.

That is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks for responding.

Have a couple ceramic bearings headed my way.
