The interchangeability of cup and cones with other manufacturer’s components is a very sensitive issue with manufacturers.  This is because a manufacturer’s internal tolerances may be different.  Interchange a cup form one manufacturer and a cone from another could result in the components not mating well, thereby reducing the performance level of the product.

As a rule of thumb, Tyson believes that if the cup or cone is made to ABMA specifications, then it is appropriate to interchange with a Tyson product.  If one of the components is not made to ABMA standards the internal geometry may be produced to different standards then there is a greater chance of accelerated failure.  The majority of product manufactured by world class bearing suppliers is produced to ABMA standards.

Below is the Tyson part numbers with interchange information with the primary suppliers to the aftermarket.
