Bearing for Craftsman Snowblower

Anyone know where I might be able to get a drive shaft bearing for a Craftsman Snowblower Model 536.918800? The bearing is part number 54423. I contacted Sears and they no longer make this part and don't have a replacement part for it. Any help on finding a replacement part would be greatly appreciated. The blower runs perfectly except for the bearing being worn out so the drive chain skips and the thing is way to heavy to push through the snow.

Thanks
John D

The thing was made by Noma, which was absorbed
by Murray, which died and was absorbed by Briggs, so
parts availability is getting tough, but I will check in the
morning. Is this a regular sealed bearing, or a bushing?
Let us know.

Yes do so, and post the inner and outer dimensions, we
might be able to come up with other solutions.

ID looks to be about 19mm. Hard to get an accurate measurement cause it's worn out. I can get a measurement of the diameter of the shaft tomorrow. Here are some pictures of it. As long as it will fit over the shaft and I can bolt it to the steel body I can probably make it work. I can also take some pics of where it mounts to the blower tomorrow if it will help. Just let me know what you want.

I know it's been a few years since you ordered the bushings from jack's small engine but, would you happen to remember what their part number was? I have the same problem with my snowblower - 54423 bearing is shot.

I found a Mountable Bearing " at Northern Tool, their item number is 13851. Cost me 17 bucks each but worth it.
