G'day from Australia

I am restoring a mid 20s Excelsior and I have a few problems!

The rear wheel hub cup and cone bearings are worn out, and I have been told that the factory made available a conversion to use tapered roller bearings. I understand that the same bearings also fitted the Hendersons.

I would appreciate it if someone could give me some measurements of the bearings so that I could modify my hub to take roller bearings.

Thanks and regards
