Went through that hell at work today, tried to assemble a belt idler on a refrigeration unit with the SKF(NAPA) made in China bearings. Never could get it to run right. CRAP! Ended up getting some made in USA Timkens, worked like a charm. If I ever get another China made bearing, it’s going in the garbage where it belongs.

I"ve had the same issue with rebuilding mower decks. Ended up have to sort out good used bearings.

The NAPA countermen kept telling me their bearings are made in China to NAPA specs, so they are just as good as other brands.

That would be true if it were true! A total lack of quality control, anyone could tell the bearing I was trying to use wouldn't work. They were way to tight.

It's not that they can't make quality parts, it just that the U.S. suppliers don't require the quality and control required. They are selling them cheaper for a reason.

They are built down to a price not up to a standard!
