Last post was February 2020. Do you have you some updated news on the current supply of these that the spares scheme should be concerned about?.

Hi Roy, if you were adressing my post, all I can say is that it seems difficut to obtain FAG bearings in imperial sizes. SKF appears to be a possibility but will require a substantial order. For the time being, NKE is the only replacement bearing for 011543 readily available. It is available in C0 and C3 clearance, and the cage is made of steel.

Spot on, I have tried to source the alternative bearings but for the reasons you have found it's an impossible task to find them at a comparable price. When I have found brass cage alternatives the cost is significant and the quantity you have to order means it becomes unviable.
