Currie 9 Big Bearing - Help with Part Number

I have a Currie 9, 31 spline axles that takes the old style Ford large bearing. I really don't want to go to Currie for axle bearing and seals. (Trying to get this together tonight) Does anyone know a cross reference part number from NAPA or other autoparts store? These guys always want a year/model and I'm not having any luck in my research.

Look up a 79 ford truck 4x4. That should be the big bearing.
Just take your axle in and let them compare them.

Measure with a Micrometer
Cutter with an ax
Beat it to fit
Paint it to match

It is part number BS20 at Napa Autoparts if anyone is looking for this cross reference.

So I pressed on the new bearing/seal onto the axle, put a light coat of grease on it and it slid in the axle with absolutely zero effort. I hope the seal is sufficient to prevent leaks. I don't have a gasket between the axle tube and the retaining plate.
