WTB - Non swivel style FC rear wheel bearing [ Green Brand ]

Looking for one or two of the non swivel FC rear wheel bearings for an application that doesn't require the swivel feature. "Green" was one brand of these bearings. Anyone have one or two to sell?

Thanks
Marty Scarr

Of course I'm curious what you're up to with no movable suspension. ATV perhaps...

ATV- All Terrain Vehicle
Seems like that would need even MORE swivel, not none.
I am curious too!

So the application is for an old dune buggy. It has a Corvair engine and transmission, uses FC axles that are housed in a tube. The axle has been modified to have a bearing at the differential end, so it's more like a straight axle than a swing axle. It does have a u-joint at the diff end, and the outboard end uses vw spring plates and torsion bars. Here's a few pics.

The Green bearing for FCs is a Z-17

Z-16 is 60-62 Z-20 is 63-64
