1964 M20E Elevator Bearing?

Recommended Posts

Asking for a shop on the field:

Does anyone have a part number or what size the bearings are for the elevator(s) on a 1964 M20E?  Looked in the parts manual, but cannot seem to find a parts number for this.  Any help appreciated.  Thanks.

It may take me a while but I have the bearings at my hangar.  It took me a while to find them and they were not cheap for their size about $50 each.

 

I will try to find the web site and the part number for you.

Awesome, thank you!  I will let them know.  We did legitimately look, but just couldn't figure it out.  I told the shop that they really need to get on all these different forums to assist them for things like this!

The bearing are pressed into a fitting which is bolted to the elevator, there is no part number other than the assembly.

Even on my Lance there are part numbers for the bearings.  Are you saying that Mooney does not do this?

Yes the bearing is pressed on the hinge but it can easily be pressed out and the new one pressed in.

 

That's exactly how it works in my aircraft.  The shop here is just trying to determine what they need to order for one of their customers.  Like I said, we were surprised to not find it in the parts manual for the M20E as other manufacturers provide the information in their parts manuals.  If anyone has any info, I would certainly appreciate it.

Being that you are middle man....    On most bearings there are numbers stamped on them somewhere, usually with sealed bearings it will be on the metal side shield, that you can then cross reference that at any ole bearing shop.    Second you can get the micrometer out and measure them and look that up in a chart.  http://www.timken.com/en-us/products/bearings/Documents/7011_Dimension_Catalog.pdf

Hi, I believe the rudder and elevator have identical bearings. 

If so I replaced my rudder bearings last annual. 

Torrington PN3A is the P/N.

Amazon has a Ball bearing supplier that responded well to my questions. $57 shipped...

hope this helps!

At least on my Lance, Piper assigned part numbers for the bearings used for the flap, rudder, and stabilator control surfaces.  With this part number, I can cross reference a part from most aircraft part suppliers.  Just curious that Mooney didn't do it this way.  Either way, I'll follow up on MB65E's part suggestion and see what we can find out.  Thanks again!

I just replaced my rudder and elevator bearings. Had to put JB wield in two of the bearings to push them out.

Great idea w/ the JB weld.

Hello, I’m searching for elevator hinge bearings for my 64 M20E came across this thread just trying to figure out if the PN3a part number someone posted is for the elevator hinges or the bell crank. Thank you

Welcome aboard 34U...

Probably best to confirm your serial number against the ones in the parts manual.

Check the download section if you don’t have a manual...

Best regards,

As you can see in the above thread they do not list part numbers is the manual for the bearings. Looks like some people have been talking about it previously and have possibly figured out the part number. That was the only reason for the post.
