Re: [FWDLK] Rear Disc Brake Conversion for 1957 Dodge Custom Royal -- What's a 'green' axle bearing?

Green bearings convert the factory conical roller bearings to actual
roller bearings.  This is fine for drag cars which put a lot of horses

for road cars.  But since you probably aren't daily driving this car it
shouldn't be a problem.  You'll have to have them pressed onto the
axles.  I've had several sets done on 8 3/4 rears in the past.  They are
only for 8 3/4 rears so far as I know.  Never had a failure.  Last set I
got from mancini racing.

-- What's a 'green' axle bearing?

I converted my front brakes to disc several years ago, and now want to
convert the rear brakes as well.  I found a kit for the rear brakes
here: http://www.ecihotrodbrakes.com/rear_discbrake_conversions.html

There’s a note which states “Chrysler product rear axles require one
piece "GREEN" axle bearings.”  Can anyone tell me what ‘green’ axle
bearing are, and where I can obtain them?

Thanks so much for your help!

there is a little bitty 'data retrieval' specialist tucked away in
his little cubbyhole in the noggin that is trying to get my attention
with the suggestion that the 'green' bearings are necessary because
the supply of the Original design bearing dried up. Now, I never
personally researched this so I must a read it somewhere, some time ago.
