Default Steering Column Bearings

Hello,
Newbie here on Ford Truck.
1984 F350 Diesel Dually, upgraded with a new (Jasper) 7.3 and 5-speed with single mass clutch.
Steering Column Bearings are shot. Ford told me the bearings that were removed are longer available. I went to my '83 donor truck, pulled the column and you guessed it... same bearings. Bearing supply has correct OD/ID but the width is greater (larger). Has anyone else out there run into this problem. Do these bearings cross with anything else? Suggestions???
Thanks kindly in advance.

Tom

I looked on LMC TRUCKS and all they offer is up to a F250

I have had excellent luck in the past by either copying the bearing number or take it to an auto store and they can cross reference the # to an in stock bearing

all in all it should not be hard to find a new bearing

and if for some reason you can't find one, get the '83 bearing and shim it to fit

have you tried an '84 donor

Check bronco graveyard, LMC and National Parts depot.
I know bronco graveyard has them for the 87-91 and 92-96, so they probably have them for the 80-86 as well. Good luck to ya.

Those are all good suggestions, worse comes to worse, go to pull a part or junkyard and see if you can find a whole column, I was always under the impression the columns were the same across the F150/250/350 and Bronco's.
