IMS Bearing identification

I have the original IMS bearing that the PO removed while changing a leaky RMS. Is there a way to identify if it was a single, or double row bearing? Are there specific dimensions to look for? You can't tell much by looking at it.

Thanks!

Check LN's website for comparable photos. If the bearing has a grove machined off center into its circumference, it is a dual row as the single rows used and external snap ring.

Does it have the seals still intact? If so, remove them and look. You don’t need it to be serviceable. You should be able to see one, or two rows of bearings I would think?
