1988 345 classic axle bearing

I am on the road and my front axle bearing just went out. Does anyone know where i can find the part number for the front axle bearing? Or how I can determine what bearing I need without taking it apart?

Should be stamped on the edge of the bearing, if you can't find it in your manual
