Warn Premium Hub Bearing

Anyone know where I can get a replacement bearing for a Warn Premium Hub from a 72'-75' CJ? I spent the better part of the last hour or so at the local 4X4 shop (which can usually come up with just about anything). The original part is a Torrington Y-246, which I learned was later changed to B246. I believe it was discontinued in 1996. We managed to find a cross-reference number to a Massey-Ferguson tractor, but ran into a dead end at that point. I hate to swap out the entire hub just because I can't find a bearing.

A locking hub doesn't have bearings. Are you referring to the wheel bearings?

Only Torrington bearing I can think of in a 30 is in the Spindle for the outer axle

According to this thread, Herm the overdrive guy had replacement bearings 3 years ago. Might still have some or a part number that will cross.

Edit: Looks like they are listed on his site in a rebuild kit.

Yes, I think that is it! I'll check with Herm.

I am referring to the bearing shown in this picture, part of the "selectable drive hub" shown under "special equipment" in the 1974 FSM.

I spoke with Herm a few minutes ago. He confirmed that the bearing has been discontinued. He said that Warn has come up with a nylon washer as a replacement for the bearing. I'll probably order a whole rebuild kit from him (as shown above) with the nylon washer instead of the bearing.
