    Does anyone know of a replacement bearing for the front cover of an '83 308 QV USA, Ferrari part number 174260? Also, the bearing part number for the USA QV and non USA QV are different. Are they interchangeable? Thanks in advance.

    Check your part number. It isn't for a bearing. It is far too high a number for a 308 in any event.

    Also there are 2 possibilities for the 83 308. The inner bearing has 2 possible ODs and it would need to be measured.

    There is no difference mentioned for US and base version.

    If it is the outer bearing you are looking for it is a proprietary size and not commonly available. You won't be getting it from a bearing supplier off the internet.

    Here is the relevant page from the 1983 US 308QV SPC:

    The earlier bearings (104918 inner and 112019 outer) are standard sizes (used in production 10/1983 and before).

    The later (larger) bearings (121275 inner and 121274 outer) are the more-difficult-to-get non-standard sizes that Brian mentioned (used in production 11/1983 and after).

    (Note: Usually, they are more specific, giving before and after engine SNs, for when a design change is made, but in this case they just give a date for when each style "crankcase" was made).

    My apologies for the part number. I had several numbers on the page and wrote the wrong one. I meant part number 121274. From what I gather, it is proprietary. If the US and non US are the same, any idea why they have different part numbers? US, 121274, non-US 175260. From a previous post I saw bearing part number for non-US as SKF 6203-22/C3. Anyone know if this is correct and would work. Thanks much.

    The US and non-US 308QV part numbers for these bearings (and the design change in these bearings) is exactly the same -- here's the non-US 308QV SPC page for these bearinjgs:

    https://www.ricambiamerica.com/car-diagrams/ferrari/v6-v8/308-group/308qv/timing-system-controls.html

    The "175260" part number seems to be just an updated PN for the sealed 40mm OD 112019 bearing (at least that's what shown on Ricambi America's website, but, oddly, only for the late 308GT4 SPC, and, even more oddly, the quantity is shown as "1" -- whereas, this same sealed 40mm OD 112019 outer bearing is used on all the late 308 carb thru early 308QV with a quantity of 2). Where are you getting this 175260 PN from?

    Thanks much for the reply. I now don't know where I got that number. To many numbers on the page. Bottom line, there isn't a replacement for the bearing that isn't Ferrari. Thanks again.
