Wheel Bearing ?

I'm looking for a wheel bearing chart to find a wheel bearing by size. I have looked at several bearing sizes but none will fit. I have a '62 Ranchero and there is a long list of options to go from 4 lug to 5 lug front suspension. The idea of going to a company that sells adaptable rotors and hubs is expensive and I don't see any replacement parts. Maybe I crazy ,but I like to think out side the box.

Sam Thanks for the timken. Matt I am looking to go to discs. The '62 Falcon has a smaller spindles than a say '66 Mustang. I am looking to use 5 lug on the front. I have Granada spindles but some people say they cause bump steer. The problem is the bearings I would like to use has a wide distance between O.D and I.D. ( So I don't think they are made)I am also thinking about having a sleeve made to fit on the spindle but not sure what it would cost? The hub for the falcon is square and can not be redrilled.Thanks for your help guys!
