Dear Datsun 1200 club

I imported a Datsun 1200 GX Coupe 1975 model from South Africa to Australia during November 2011. It has 133000 km on the clock, completely original and runs beautifully. However the back wheel bearings are noisy, and I want to replace them. For some reason the parts stores in Australia cannot source the right parts (bearings) for me. Can this forum please help me: what are the back wheel bearing sizes (specifications) on the South African Datsun 1200 GX 1975 model?

I had little trouble in finding the right front wheel bearings (parts), so those have been replaced. It has disc brakes in front.

They have now twice given me wrong parts for the back bearings. It seems the South African 1200 GX model has different bearings than the Datsun 1200 that was sold in Australia. This is what is causing the problem apparently.

Any help/advice would be highly appreciated.

regards

JC

Cup and cone or roller bearing ?
SA vehicles used a lot of wierd parts from different manufacturers
Do you have dimensions and pics by chance ?
Numbers off the old ones ?

Its roller bearings. The mechanic took the numbers and the dimensions by taking out the shaft. He gave it to to the parts place. I can get it from him if that will help. Will the parts place be able to source the bearings based on the numbers and dimensions they were provided?

Knowing the numbers
Also the ID - OD and width of the bearing should nail it
