Thanks MrUnix,

I went by measurement and was off enough to buy the wrong parts. The original is a Hoover #87016 which specs a 16mm ID. They are still readily available. I wish the Ebay selection would show more than the box because the inner race and shield on these is slightly thicker than the outer race. I don’t think it will matter here but once-burned … I’ve attached a picture of the original (which sounds like an old roller skate) and the wrong-sized replacement.

I’ll get a pair, re-jig the bearing press and have another try. Cheers, sh
