i'm not convinced the Torrington needle bearing have a cup or a cage.tapered roller bearings do.

the cam bearings are drawn cup. the cup holds the needles and provides the outside race and the needles ride the shaft for the inside race. the b is the identifier according to the nomenclature in their catalog.
some people call the cup a cage so i added that even though it is a wrong term, sorta like the dual vs single fire, some have diff views.
