    Needle bearing question 951.

    I wanted to use the oem loose needle bearings as they have more bearing to surface and I read that a few race engine builders use the loose bearings as well.

    I just looked at my local seadoo dealer and the new part number for the needle bearings has been replaced with a caged bearing, no needles exposed on the outside of the bearing only the inside.

    Part number is 420832552 superseded 290832550



    This is different then the other caged bearings I see for sale.

    Whatís the best route here?

    Hmm is this just a container that holds the individual needles? Remove from this and install?

    Those are not caged. They are still loose. Those plastic parts hold them together during installation and get discarded.
