      "They" have been doing that for many years. Ford used a metric OD bearing with a 1/2" bore in the starters and generators beginning in 1919 for at least the rest of the Model T era (through 1927).

        As I was walking past the assorted bearings in the local Peavey Mart store yesterday, I glanced over and saw 35mm x 11mm x 16mm bearings right next to the 35mm x 11 mm x .625 inch bearings.

          Typical inch bore metric bearing. Nothing "special order" about it. Any bearing supplier should have it on the shelf or have in a day.

            Let us know how the surface finish is on those bearings. Chances are the sides will look like they are fresh off the bandsaw. There are inexpensive Chinese made bearings, and then there are CHEAP Chinese made bearings.....
