    It is a cone on the stem and a cup in the frame. There are numbers on the parts. The origionals are made in England and I believe inch series not metric. Sorry I can not tell you what you ask for at this time. It is the same tapered roller bearing assembly as in my current avatar bike. The seal probably is Husky specific if I recall. I guess the cone and cup could come as a set but that is not how I got them from the industrial or even NAPA.

    Oh there are various ways to modify things to work. If you get to mill like vertical Bridgeport for example and a boring head there is an air powered attachment that fits into the 5/8 hole on the boring head. In place of boring bar. clamp the cone or the cup and modify the bearing part. I used essentially dremmel sized grinding stone. These things are often kind of how bad do you want it.

    download a parts manual from HVA factory and it should have the bearing numbers on the part for you
