The marking on an American made Holmes 750


Recommended Posts





Back in August of 2010 a member reported he had seen the name Ernest Holmes on a bearing.

He was thinking that's pretty cool, you don't see that very often. Someones name on a bearing.

Then he noticed something else got he got to looking and seen where it was made. Really...


Is this OEM or a replacement part?

That is what i was wondering. When you think of Ernest Holmes you think of american steel.

don't know if Holmes ever used jap bearings but most Holmes repairs we have carried out over the years have made our bearing man scratch his head, in a lot of cases they used different inner and outer race to get to what they needed, my guess on this is that the inner has been replaced at sometime maybe i'm wrong !!
