1928 Buick Model 115 inner wheel bearing cone

Recommended Posts

Currently working on restoring a 1928 Buick model 115 in my high school auto maintenance class. We recently realized we were missing our front inner wheel bearing cone. We are having lots of trouble finding this part locally, so any help would be greatly appreciated. On another thread, we have been told that a 1928 Oakland 6 & 212 used the same bearing. Luckily this widens the search a bit, and once again, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Not sure exactly what you are looking for. Your picture shows an inner cup. An complete inner bearing has an inner cup, a separator (the piece with the balls) and an outer cup. A complete outer bearing has an inner cone, a separator and an outer cone.

According to my GM fast movers parts book (the one that shows all the makes in one book) from 1930 to 1953 the 40 series Buick separators are the same as the Chev/Pontiac/Olds. However the cups and cones are different.

I would think that 1928 could also be the same. If that were true your inner cup (the piece in your photo) is #909602. If this is the number or if you can give the numbers off the other pieces to any bearing supply shop they should be able to get you a bearing.

Rather than trying to match pIece parts to an old bearing, you may have better luck to remove the inner and outer races and get a complete new set. Your bearing supplier should be able to match the ID, OD, and width (thickness) with a new matched set taper bearing.

I have some used ones. I'm sure I can set you up with a good one. Send me a PM with some contact info and we can work something out.

Could you post some picture of the car you are working on?

Here are some pictures of the car when we started. I will try and take a picture of the car as it is now. It has been a fun and challenging process. post-110089-14314309678_thumb.jpg

Here is a link to a video of it running. When our instructor brought it in, the motor was seized, but over the course of a month we got it running. I will attach a link to a youtube video of it running and driving. It was amazing to see it take life again, and move under its own power.

Looks very original - good to see it is still running its original fuel system and distributor
