    The bearings Brian has work perfect.

    I may have taken the scenic route to get the old bearing off but the axle wasn't damaged so I'll call it a win. Even if it makes more sense in the long run to swap in an 8.5 but I am glad bearings are still available for the BOP 8.2.

    Put a little grease on the shaft wear it contacts the seal,so it’s not dry,and the seal doesn’t try and grip the shaft.

    remember to oil the axle shaft when pressing on your new parts also... IF you already did not, oil well. :) LOL

    Just to follow up, the machine shop was able to save the original retainers and reuse them.

    Also, Walt's suggestion about checking ebay periodically has worked out well for me, as I was able to find a pair for $25, instead of the usual $175-$200!! You'll need to set up an ebay notification and be quick to act. It did take four years of watching and waiting before this much cheaper set showed up, though!
