Idler arm bearings
 
I ordered a new idler arm for my sixty. It is the type with metal sleeves and rubber bushings. The one on my 60 has two ball bearings and fittings for lubrication. I would like to be able to keep it lubricated. I can't find the bearings. They were manufactured by Hoover Ball & Bearing Co. and the number is 3037. I have not been able to find a cross reference and Hoover is out of business. Anyone have this type of idler arm on their birds? Were you able to replace the bearings? Source for the bearings? Thanks for the input?

How about this. Looks like Ramblers used the same one.

Ken,

As you can see I spend far too much time on Ebay.
