Stihl 290/310/390  6203 C3 SKF OPEN TYPE BEARING 17X40X12mm   Seals 17 X 30 X 4.4  I level off the bearing cap and the cylinder with some 320 wet or dry paper on a glass pane before reassembly.

Buy a sealed bearing and then carefully remove the existing rubber seals.

The sealed bearing sets are always cheaper than open, mostly due to the fact that sealed is what's produced most.

FWIW the plastic cage (Polymid) bearings are more expensive than the steel cage bearings and are normally considered more desirable for high speed service.

Also if you loose a plastic cage, the engine will lock up but there are a minimum of metal shavings up in the engine. If you loose a metal cage, the metal shavings have been going up through the engine for some time and you will consider the piston/rings gone and sometimes the cylinder too.
