About 20K miles ago I replaced the propshaft centre bearing with a Milner's part.
I was underneath the truck today and it's shot to pieces, loose, rubber surround is cracked, bearing shot.
Before I shell out on another one from Milners, is there possibly another source for one of these that might last a bit longer? Apart from the OEM Mitsi part that is.

The only reason I don't particularly want the OEM part is the likely price!  - If you've fitted the mitsi part how much was it?
I notice Milners are saying that their current centre bearing is:-

"A JAPA (JAPAN) brand centre bearing. Located in the middle of the rear propshaft.
This centre bearing is a new design and may look different to the original. "

So maybe they've changed the source of the part.

Edit - thinking about the mileage it's probably more like 18K than 20 K.

I bought and fitted a Milners one a couple of years back. It was a goldy cadmium plated one. Changed it again last year when I had the exhaust done, again with one from Milners, only this one was black. Whether the finish may indicate that they have been sourced from different manufacturers, I dunno.

Looking at alternative suppliers I found this site:-

https://www.bestpartstore.co.uk/mitsubishi/l-200-k7-t-k6-t/17459/10939-propeller-shaft-bearing#10785

They have 4 offered from different "makers" Nipparts - BTA - Blueprint - and Herth+Buss and they all look pretty much the same part from 19 to 77.

I'll probably just buy the Milners version - their stuff gets to me reliably and quickly in France Grin
