I would think the manufacturer would have their own internal part number, and may or may not have a mapping to the OEM part number

EDIT: Clevite has an aftermarket parts catalog and an OEM parts catalog. Clevite reps don't have access to the OEM parts catalog and that's why they can't find BMW factory bearings (even though they make them). If King is the manufacturer of the 702/703 bearings, it's possible they have the same separation of aftermarket and OEM catalogs.
