Capri V6 Diff Wheel Bearings?

Hi all
 
It has been too long since I was here. Life is busy.
 
I am trying to spend some time on my Capri to fix some issues. One being the noise in my diff that I have tracked down to a wheel bearing failure and not the diff center.
 
I ordered new wheel bearing from my local auto supplier but they were not the right size and didnt have the o ring seal. They rang the supplier and double checked and they were the correct bearings according to the listing.
 
So my question is.........What is the diff in my V6 Capri? Can you guys who know please look at the pics attached and tell me if this is or is not a V6 Capri diff or why I cannot find the correct bearings. 
 
Thanks a million guys
 
Damien

    I would have taken in the bearing to measure it but we cut it off with the oxy so it was toast
     
    I already asked them if I can bring in the bearing from the other side to match it and the bearing supplier seem to think that it was too hard 
     
    I think I will take it to a bearing specialist rather than a bearing supplier
     
    Thanks for the confirmation that it is a standard v6 diff.
     
    Wonder why the bearings dont match the listing? Then again if they cant match the size of a bearing sample then Im not so surprised......

    other issue is the size of the snap rings supplied in the kits now-they are too wide and too thick. I assume this is an Imperial to Metric change over.  To get the correct snap ring, as for MK2 Escort RS2000 ones.  Using the supplied ones foul on the axle tube and you cannot seat them.

    Try a 16283 bearing. Think that’s it from memory. But the slip ring needs modifying.

    Advance bearings Blacktown have them in stock. They ship the same day. Best bearing supplier I’ve been too. They also supplied in 24hrs the diff bearings all of them. They pulled their catalogue and asked me questions which is welcomed.

    Update
     
    Received new bearings from CBC bearings today
     
    F206AKIT
     
    CBC KIT2742 
     
    People have asked me for dimensions so here goes:
     
    Axle 30mm Dia where bearing seats
     
    Old bearing on axle
    62mm OD
    21mm Thick
     
    New bearing
    62mm OD
    29.9mm ID
    21mm Thick
     
    New Retaining ring
    29.9mm ID
    46.1mm OD
    9.57mm Thick
     
    Old retaining ring
    ??? ID cant measure installed on axle
    46.1 OD
    8.9mm Thick. Difficult to measure on axle. Also has a chamfer
     
    So as you can see this confirms what other have said about the issue with the retaining ring being too thick and it doesnt have a chamfer to match the old ring and the axle tube. I presume i will need to find a friend with a lathe......

    Some IDIOT with a grinder (me) cut into the axle shaft while attempting to removing the old bearing. I have been advised that it would be unwise to use it. I am now searching for a replacement passenger side axle for V6 Capri. If anyone can help me out I would be grateful.....

    Hi John,
    Yes they do, technically they are called a shrink ring.. suit 30mm shaft, but they measure about 4-5 thou undersize as they are a tight fit, normal deal was to use what Ford called an "oven fit", ie warm them up to houshold oven type temperatures, 'bout 150-175 would do it, and press on, preferably with an arbor press,
    Dont use flame, they can get too hot and expand permanently,
    Got one in my shed as a matter of fact,
    cheers
