    Hi,

    I am unsure if this post is permissible, but I think it meets the "group interest test".

    I am having a run of torque tube bearings produced for the 456GTA. If you are interested they are available in lots of three bearings at a cost of USD260.00 per bearing plus shipping, which will be inexpensive as they are not easily damaged.

    They should be complete with the next 10 working days, possibly sooner.

    I am using top quality Japanese NSK bearings. These have been in use in my own 456 for several years now.

    Please let me know ASAP as I need to confirm quantities,

    Best Wishes
    Scott

    This is a great initiative... I ended up re-using my rubber housings and changed the NSK Bearing on the inside. I had a an edge grooved into the housing and used a C snap ring to lock in the bearing. Used plenty of green loctite as per Constantine's recommendation.

    It did the job fine and cost me about 500$. However, I definitely would have preferred using a new alternative like the one you mentioned above. At that price it's a no-brainer.

    I know the production may be costly but I would ask Daniel at Ricambi and/or other part suppliers if they would resell them for you or you could put them up on eBay as a permanent listing. I'm sure this is going to come up again as these cars age and Ferrari's replacement parts are priced at 2000$ a piece.

    Thanks to efforts like yours that we can contribute to making a great brotherhood and helping each other out. No offense to Ferrari but sometimes with these cars we need all the help we can get.

    Hi fellow 456 fans,
    I've ordered a set of bearings from Scott already, but I'd like to publicly acknowledge my appreciation for his making these bearings a reality.
    It takes a lot of careful effort to reengineer parts for our cars so we can continue to enjoy them on the road.
    So, thank you very much!

    Maybe you could interest Ricambi or Eurospares in buying some?

    Thanks Scott. Somehow I can’t open the attached images.
    Does it work for 456M GTA? How to order?
