Hydraulic Connecting Rod Bushing

Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:05 am

It appears that the hydraulic connecting rod bushing, part # 352007r1 is no longer available. Does anybody have a source for these or a size that can be bought that may fit with a little machining? Not a part that gets replaced very often, so maybe why they're not carried anymore. :?

Harold, I had a block on the work table that was easy to get to. This is what I measured:
shaft OD= .685"
bushing ID= .690" (11/16"= .6875, and I would guess that's what the bushing ID originally was)
bushing OD - I'm not comfortable with the measurements I got here, but if you assumed the bushing was 1/16" thick, the bushing OD would be .6875 + .1250= .8125" (13/16")

If you google the ID on eBay lots of choices come up (11/16 ID by 7/8" OD seems to be fairly common). Mcmaster-Carr, Grainger, Fastenal, etc. may also have them. I'm sure your dad could shave or ream anything close to fit your unit.

Edit: when you remove the old bushing you can get an accurate OD measurement.

Thanks Bob....that helped immensely. That will teach me to loan my calipers out. :cry:
