Introduction

Welcome to PartsCrossReference.com by Interchange Inc. This online data retrieval system will enable you to cross-reference Bearings, Mounted Units, Seals, Drive Belts, and Filters quickly and easily, from any location at any time.

Our 1.5 million part number database gives you the most comprehensive and up-to-date interchange information available. Both domestic and foreign part numbers for producers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are included, as well as government data. This guide is an essential tool for anyone buying, selling, using, or specifying parts, and a proven way to increase uptime, consolidate inventory, and reduce costs.

If you are familiar with the print or CD-ROM versions of the International Interchange Guides, you will find that this interactive online version follows the same basic principles. The easy-to-use format allows you to search for alternatives by part number or by dimensions, with diagrams and descriptions included in most instances. Monthly data additions insure you have access to the most current and complete cross-referencing information.

Disclaimer Notice

Every effort has been made to ensure that the data in this catalog is correct. However, we do not assume responsibility for possible errors.
PartsCrossReference.com is not intended to be an engineering manual. Its prime function is to provide basic comparisons and interchanges, and to support blueprints and engineering data. The user must be aware of application requirements, and load-rating charts must be consulted for special needs. Every interchange listed here has been sanctioned by a manufacturer in its published information. Since some data appears to be contradictory, and dimensions and styles vary somewhat, we have attempted to show the best information available to us. The information contained in this guide is accurate to the best of our knowledge. However, due to the fact that the information has been collected from many different sources, we are not responsible for variances or misinformation obtained from these sources or for manufacturers revising or changing specifications of any part.
Note: Bearing manufacturers frequently omit suffix data from the markings on bearings, and extreme care must be exercised in the interpretation of cross-reference information published throughout the industry.

Search Page

To begin your search for parts cross-references, enter a part number or partial part number in the text box and hit Go. If you want to search using the physical attributes of a part, create a Custom Query.

Group numbers are assigned by Interchange, Inc. to congregate equivalent parts. For example, all flanges in group FL3280 are interchangeable. If you have purchased Interchange’s printed catalogs, you can use the group number to get up-to-the-minute data from the web site.

Bearings

When searching for part numbers starting with zero, also check the letter “O”. When searching for part numbers starting with one, also check the letter “I”.

The Group code is used to group similar types of parts together, to simplify searches.

  • Ball Bearing group numbers start with the numeral “1”.
  • Tapered Cone group numbers start with the numeral “2”.
  • Tapered Cup group numbers start with the numeral “3”.
  • Tapered Cone & Cup Assembly group numbers start with the numeral “4”.
  • Straight & Curved Roller Bearing group numbers start with the numeral “5”.

USA FSN bearing numbers now have two zeroes in the 5th and 6th positions. For example, 3100-00-001-4689 is the same as 3100-001-4689.

EJ and ESJ prefixes on RBC needle bearings may be listed with E prefixes, representing internal design.

GR prefixes on McGill bearings, meaning Guiderol Constructions, may be shown with no prefixes.

Torrington bearings prefixed with B, J, HJ, or JH indicate cage types and are sometimes shown without prefixes.

John Deere part numbers appear without suffixes in most cases. ARP568 and ARP568A seal numbers (aeronautical recommended practice) are included by the dash numbers only (A.S. or Aeronautical Standard) and identified as U.S. Standard.

Tapered bearing groups with the notation "CHAMFER DIFFERS FROM ADJOINING GROUP" refers to cones and/or cups that have identical dimensions and angles of taper, but having differences only in their chamfer or radius.

The notation "TAPER DIFFERS FROM ADJOINING GROUP" is used when consecutive groups containing tapered cones and cups show identical dimensions, but with different angles of taper in their internal construction.

"SPECIAL FEATURES" is a term used to designate some design difference between adjoining groups having the same basic dimensions.

Unground straight roller bearings have been shown in the "ground" groups in accordance with several interchange sources.

Mounted Units

When searching for part numbers starting with zero, also check the letter “O”. When searching for part numbers starting with one, also check the letter “I”.

Seals

When searching for part numbers starting with zero, also check the letter “O”. When searching for part numbers starting with one, also check the letter “I”.

Drive Belts

When searching for part numbers starting with zero, also check the letter “O”. When searching for part numbers starting with one, also check the letter “I”.

Filters

When searching for part numbers starting with zero, also check the letter “O”. When searching for part numbers starting with one, also check the letter “I”.

Prefix/Suffix

From the Prefix/Suffix Search page, you can learn about the prefixes and suffixes that manufacturers and distributors use to identify their parts. Typing entries into any of the four fields—prefix, suffix, brand, and description—will constrain the search to records that match your entry(ies). For example, typing “BCA” in the brand field will return all prefixes and suffixes used by BCA. Typing “BB” as a prefix will show you all prefixes that start with “BB”. If the text you type in the description field appears anywhere in the description, then it’s considered a match. For the other fields, your entry must match the beginning.

Search Results Page

The Results page shows the results of your part number or group number search. The results are sorted in alphanumerical order.

You can click on a part number to see its interchanges. You can click on a brand to learn more about it.

If your search generates more than 25 results, it is split across pages. Use the navigation in the bottom right of the page to move forward and backward within your results.

If your search generates too many results, you should try again with a more complete part number. Note that you can rerun your search without leaving this page.

Part Detail Page

The Detail page shows a series of part numbers that are interchangeable. It is usually the end result of a successful search.

The body of the page is the table of cross-references. Each interchangeable part number is shown, along with its brand. You can get more information about the brand by clicking on it.

If there are more than 25 interchangeable parts, they are split across pages. You can specify a brand (or partial brand) at the bottom of the page to restrict the search even further. Or use the navigation at the bottom of the page to move forward and backward through the list of interchangeable parts.

The diagram is a generic drawing of the part. Dimensions are also shown.

Custom Query Editor

Use this page to create or edit a Custom Query. Custom Queries are used to find a part when you don’t have the part number but you know certain physical attributes of the part. For example, it is sometimes possible to find a bearing knowing only its inner and outer diameters.

Use the Displayed Fields section to specify which fields show up on your results page. To add an item, highlight it in the left pane and then click the right arrows (>>). To remove an item, highlight it in the right pane and then click the left arrows (<<).

The criteria will be applied to restrict your search. Pick the field from the drop-down box on the left. Pick an operator. The LIKE operator, when applied to a dimension, adds a tolerance of .025” (except in Filters, where it adds a tolerance of .250"). For example, if you specify an inner bearing diameter LIKE 1.000”, the search will find all bearings with a diameter between .975” and 1.025” (between .750" and 1.250" for Filters). When applied to part numbers, the LIKE operator adds a wildcard to the part number. For example, part number LIKE 123 will find all parts that start with 123.

The sort order specifies how the results are to be sorted. You can specify a primary sort and a secondary sort.

If you want to save your query for future use, check the box and type in a descriptive name.

Custom Query Search Results

The Results page shows the results of your Custom Query. The fields shown are the ones specified in the query. Click on a part number or group number to see interchanges. Click on the brand name to learn more about the brand.

Each group has a description. If you wish to see these descriptions, click the Show button near the middle top of the page. Click Hide to hide the descriptions.

If you want to make a change to your query, use the Edit button in the upper right of the page.
