Original World's Ball Bearings Question

Post by Worldsman »

Hello guys,

I have a question about worlds ball bearings:

Do the Ball bearings from the Worlds-ReRe fit on the original 94 Worlds Buggy?

Best regards
Worldsman :D

Not all of them. I know that the re-re used 3/16 axles and had non-flanged bearings on the rear carriers.

I never buy bearing kits. I always buy whatever I need from somewhere like Avid, Boca, or Fast Eddy.

Considering that my cars are often mismatched jumbles of parts, its probably for the better.
Always looking for new and interesting ways to waste money.

Agreed. The four bearings in rear carriers should be the only difference.

If you have a pre-made bearing kit for the re-re Worlds and want to use it on the original Worlds, you'll have four extra 3/16"x3/8" unflanged bearings and be short four 1/4"x3/8" flanged bearings. Eight if you count the four flanged bearings needed for the steering bellcranks which should be replaced from the get-go. Bronze bushings against nylon plastic is not a good idea.
