on line parts catalog

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Sat Mar 11, 2017 4:52 pm

I would love to know who the genius dumb a$$ was at CNH who made the decision that the bearing and seal dimensions for these 65 year old tractors should be listed in millimeters rather than inches. The only metric item on them is the spark plug holes.

Most likely a result of parts manufactured in countries using the metric system :roll:

That is a drag.
Google "millimeters to inches fraction" and a conversion table at Plumbingsupply.com will pop up.

but really....

if you google, "convert X mm to inches" substituting whatever number you want for X, google will give you the answer. This works for a whole bunch of other unit conversions as well.

I don't care which system we use, but not both!
In fourth grade(1972) we had to start learning the metric system because the whole country was going to change over to it...they even started putting up speed limit signs in km/hr.

25.4 is the magic (ball park) number to remember.
mm to inch - divide by 25.4
inch to mm- multiply by 25.4

Or get one of these- one push of the button switches back and forth. Quite handy- especially if you goofed off a lot in fourth grade...

I know how to use the conversion tables, but it just seems stupid. I also have one of the calipers that reads either way. The bolts, Woodruff keys, etc. are still listed in inches, and they are most all coming from China also. I think whoever made that decision ahd to push his pants down to see due to the location of his head. It might make sense if the sellers of bearings and seals had converted to metric listings, but they still list them in inches, though many have gone to decimals rather than fractions.

Since there is no exact conversion between the two, how could they expect someone to order these metric parts for use in our Cubs? Or am I missing something?

Note the dimensions are part of an extended description that isn't in the printed catalogs. They probably added an extended description to all bearings in their standard parts system. It was probably done for the sake of part selection in current design work. Since new designs are metric, metric dimensions are what is useful. That the extended description in metric units shows up in the online catalog for obsolete equipment probably wasn't a big issue.

I have no problem with the metric system, in many ways it makes more sense than the inch system. Where I have a problem is when they mix the two for the same part.

Now, I've heard on multiple different forums that ALL the bearings on IH tractors have ALWAYS been metric... Not sure how true that is but it makes sense as to why the dimensions would be listed in metric.

If you go to an auto parts store and buy a bearing for an old IH, they will not measure it in metric, it will be in inches, as will the spec.s on the ones you get. The only thing originally in metric on these rigs were the spark plug holes, 18mm. If you take an IH bearing to NAPA and cross the number over, it will be to a bearing measured in inches, not mm.
