These bushes are not regularly greased. Vesconite bushes have proved the answer as they are able to operate well
Two Vesconite bushes 85 mm (3.3") outside diameter by 70 mm (2.8") inside diameter and 80 mm (3.2") long were
installed and lasted much longer than the original parts.
Advantages of Vesconite Bushes
- Need no lubrication
- Longer life
- Lower cost - two thirds of the original costs of the OEM parts
- Less downtime
- Easy to machine to required size where shaft or housing have been worn. This saves rebuilding the shafts or
repairing the housing.
