Triumph TR3 - Transmission main bearings

Hi out there:
Does anyone out there know if the main bearings for the transmission Hoffman M12K V3 are still available and if not is there an equivelant.

Chuck - When I re-built my TR3A gearbox and overdrive 11 years ago, I bought all the bearings from a local bearing supply company. I took all the old ones with me and from their catalogs, he found all the equivalent numbers for each one. Just two weaks ago, I had to change my clutch throw-out bearing after getting back from VTR in Colorado (5220 miles total) and one bearing supply shop said it would take a week to get it in. I drove around the corner to another supplier and he had it for me the same day. It's that easy.
