Very quick front wheel bearing question

Recommended Posts

Just checking out the parts x-ref spreadsheet.

Lotus part A089C8004F and A089c8005F

Both have x-ref parts for Toyota ... one is "Fits 1984 Toyota Celica Front" and the other is "For 1988."

Is there a difference between these as the Toyota parts are different numbers, whilst the Lotus part is the same ?

1990 SE if that makes any difference too.

Cheers !

The 84 outer race is not the same as the 88 esprit front hub... not too sure about the 90 esprit... but the bearings have a number stamped on them... just take the bearing to your local part shop and they will easily cross-reference it... or, if you want a cheaper price.. .take it to a bearing shop.

Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..

I changed my front wheel bearings recently on my 1990 SE and posted the SKF numbers in the Stevens X reference topic.

Front Wheel Bearings:

A089C8005F (Outer bearing) SKF bearing LM 11949/910/Q (Cup is LM11910/Q and Cone is LM11949/Q)

A089C8004F (Inner bearing) SKF bearing LM 67048/010/Q (Cup is LM67010/Q and Cone is LM67048/Q)

The seal has an outer diameter of 62mm, the inner diameter is 48 mm and the thickness is 7 mm. I used one with an additional dustlip. I fitted the bearings in my 1990 SE and the price was around 80 Euro for a whole set (2 Front wheels) including the 2 seals.
