I just rebuilt a bunch of packer gangs on my FC5000 this winter. I used the current factory bearings which are a NTN 2AC08-1.1/2

Everything I've read has said these last the best. Time will tell.

If you change the bearing it is often a good idea to change the pillow block housing as well. It seems like the older housings wear and let dirt in between the bearing and housing.

Just make sure it’s the updated bearing that comes with the two washers for spacers. Pill box has two grease nipples
