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.

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.
