Hub bearing question

Recommended Posts

I need 6803 - C3 bearings to rebuild an American Classic rear hub. The supplier says he can get 6803 bearings, but not the C3. 

 

The 6803 bearing size is standard 17 x 26 x 5 mm.

 

Does the C3 play a role and if so what?

 

Thank you.

Thank you, I found this that explains the Internal Clearing. https://blog.slsbearings.com.sg/why-is-normal-clearance-no-longer-the-normal

 

They say C3 is slightly larger than normal. So I wonder if I can use Cn rather than C3 in the hub.

Make him an offer? - he has the ceramic version of the bearing you're looking for (2nd image)

Thanks, but I live in Mauritius. I will go for the normal 6803 and I am sure it should be OK.
