Gearbox Bearing Needed for 3GL

This famous company was founded in 1899 by H H Collier and had its works at Woolwich in London. The first TT race in 1907 was won by Collier's son Charles on a 432cc Matchless, the first of many triumphs in the Isle of Man. After the First World War race machines were based on production models but were still successful. In 1931 Matchless merged with AJS and gradually the two marques lost their separate identities. Matchless went into decline in the 1950s.

Gearbox Bearing Needed for 3GL

I need a main output bearing for my old 3GL. It is original part no. 177-X-1. The OD is 62 mm; ID 1&9/32". It is 16 mm thick.

I also need a seal for that bearing: Part No. 112-C-2. Can anyone help?

It's 6206, and if you buy a 6206 2RS or 6206 2ZZ you won't need any seals...
