Thanks for pointing out the typo.  Should read: MP-126, Ball Bearing - 1/4in TOR (HSB17).  These are 1/4 inch loose balls.

1 x MP-126, Ball Bearing-1/4in TOR (HSB17)
1 x HSB205, Smalley Ring - WSM-106-S02

Thank you for getting back, Dean. Is it a bearing assembly or loose balls? Did you get one of each like this?

1 x MP-126, Ball Bearing-1/2in TOR (HSB17)
1 x HSB205, Smalley Ring - WSM-106-S02

Is the bearing 1/4" or 1/2"?

I re-built my upper furler a few years back.  The ball bearings had elongated and were no longer spherical...causing it to bind a little while under load.  I contacted Harken (262) 691-3320 and ordered out the following parts:  MP-126, Ball Bearing-1/2in TOR (HSB17), and HSB205, Smalley Ring - WSM-106-S02.  Total cost a couple years ago was about $37.  With a little bit of patience putting the bearing in the track, I have an upper furler that now works great!  Sorry, I don't have the part number for replacing the entire upper furler.

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / Re: Covid boat projects

I spoke with Vince Valdes who was a U20 builder and he told there were different products used for bonding the hull to the deck (Im just going off what we discussed over the phone so I may miss some details) and what was used on #92 is less flexible than what was used on later builds. Hes confident he can make the repair and it should last without further problems. So hopefully well be back on the water soon. I still need to go after the core issues. If anyone has undergone that repair I could sure use some advice. I love the boat and I want it to last far beyond me.

Also depending on the builder, some stamped/engraved the number on the front of the starboard side bulkhead.
Sorry, just saw this post

I checked my boat for a problem with the hull/deck seam.  I could not reach one quarter of the boat because of where it is parked in my garage, but I did not see any failure.

I have had my boat for quite awhile now.  The stringer repair two years ago was my first attempt at fiberglass repair.  I build furniture as a hobby, so I have some similar experience, but this is new to me.

Good luck with your boat.  If I can help you I would be happy to offer what I can, just let me know.

Allen
