Found some bushings

Post by Stakebed » February 19th, 2015, 10:29 pm

Well as you can see in the pic below I needed a new bushing in one of the rear shackles of my 29 AA, been broke for a very long time. Figured it would be much cheaper and quicker to source them locally as they are a plain bushing with no oil/grease groove inside. Measurements are 1" ID, 1.125" OD, 1" long.

Found them at Grainger, part# 12R765, manufactuer part# EP161816, made by Bunting.

3 pack is $8.21 but I get a discount so I got 2 packages with tax for a hair over $14 (6 total bushings) I figured if I'm replacing one and they are so cheap I might as well do all 4. If someone needs the other 2 (or just one) let me know.

left is my bad bushing, middle is new, right is good old bearing - old bearings had "CGB" stamped into the OD, not sure who they were

I thought someone on here was compiling a list of parts that can be sourced locally that fit AA's so thought id share this info.
