What does C3 mean on a bearing reference?

C3 bearings have greater clearance, the inner radial clearance is larger allowing the bearing to cope under stresses of high-speed environments, this in time leading to excessive heat. Standard bearings would simply not last as long due to these pressures. You will only require a C3 clearance bearing if you are replacing one that states C3 on it.
