Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. You are referring to the main front roller or idler on the undercarriage if I'm not mistaken? You already have this off of the machine? If so yes you should be able to replace the bearings as long as the rest of it is still within specs and not excessively worn. Let me know and I should be able to offer you some breakdowns and diagrams for the parts
