GE Rear Bearing Kits

  Is there any significant difference in these 2 kits? I notice one has the center post already bolted on the bracket.Drum-Bearing-WE25X205-00883073.jpgWE25X205Drum-Bearing-WE25M40-00571242.jpgWE25M40

Same kit/different prices.

Actually there is only one difference, the new plastic/?nylon rear bearing insert.

 

The new models use the second kit, it has a slightly thicker shoulder on the insert and slight larger diameter of the shoulder.

 

And one other unimportant difference, (that I just noticed by reading the parts descriptions), the newer model kit the ground strap slips thru the slot and it retained by one of the bearing holder mounting screws.  The older model uses a separate stamped metal nut to hold the ground strap onto one of the mounting screws.
