It appears that they still exist, and still located on Sesame Street!

Can you still get a throwout bearing with a grease zerk on it. One shot every 500 miles it would probably last forever.

I have never heard of Aetna bearings! Reading between the lines in these posts, am I correct in saying they are American made and used to be good quality but not so now or someone is impersonating them?

Since Aetna seems to be close to my home I am going to venture a visit. I still have a supply of Aetna bearings for various autos from 30s and 40s for even such vehicles as the Chrysler product fluid drives. I sold my Auburn and Cord bearings about 15 years ago to a friend who I did work for and he sold Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg parts which he made.
