Rear rockshaft bearings

Postby Matt Kirsch » Tue Jun 11, 2013 9:10 am

The bearings in the rear rockshaft on my '53 Cub are pretty sloppy.

Looks like you can still get them from CaseIH. $22.97 for the upper half, and $20.80 for the lower half.

Before I go drop another Benjamin on this Cub, does anyone have any creative solutions for replacement bearings?

Matt, Contact Phillip W. Lenke via PM for replacements.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I have 2 sets of the Delrin bearings, that Phil makes. They're very nice! They fit & function very well.

I have a set also. Fit and function like they were IH factory made. Maybe better.
