Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Auto Prop Bearings

Hi Bill K,


Yes I did Google the catalog and noticed the same. I did not see an option without X/Q. Hence the question to the group to see if someone could verify from a package purchased from AB-Marine or Bruntons.




With best regards,

In the SKF catalog, the 32004 bearing is only listed with the X/Q suffix.  In the SKF numbering system a suffix like "X" or "Q" is not used as modifiers to a base part number, but rather give some information about the design standards and service loads for that model. 


"X" means the dimensions are ISO complient, and "Q" means "optimized contact geometry and surface finish"


There are no versions of this part number without the X/Q suffix in the current catalog.
