Flanged bushing for steering box

Postby Bob McCarty » Mon Apr 28, 2014 10:09 pm

This bushing looks like a top hat with the top cut out. The replacement that Case/IH sells runs $75. I'm wondering if it would work to use a bronze bushing and bronze thrust washer in place of the one piece bushing. Any thoughts? Also, has anyone found a suitable replacement for the steel split bushing?

Thanks, Bob

We need to check with farmertan and see what he could produce them for. I might still have one around if I can think of it.

Bob, I can't think of any reason that a bushing and thrust washer wouldn't work. If you have the measurements, you might check what McMaster carr has to offer.

I do not remember what the length is of the bushing but it is a 1.125" ID and a 1.375" OD with a 0.125" thick flange. It was a standard off the shelf Oilite bushing at the local bearing supply house, cost less than $20, I want to say less than $15 but I can't find the receipt.

I do not have an riginal bushing for a sample, but McMaster-Karr has a large assortment of flanged bushings.

I looked briefly in the repair manual I have and they look pretty simple to make. I have my cub apart so I will get the bushing and try to make some. I might even try to make some out of UHMWPE, a type of high density plastic. They should last a long time it is similar to the material that the plastic wheel bushings are made from they use in some of the new riding mowers

John, McMaster has them for 1" and 1 1/4" shaft diameters. This one is 1 1/8". That's why I was looking at doing the combination. Criswell, if you could give me contact info for them or a part # and brand if there is any chance you have those.

Bob,
I can't find where I put the receipt from when I bought all the bushings for the front axle/steering, that is why I can't remember what the length is of the bushing. The 1.125" x 1.375" flange bushing comes in three lengths, 0.750", 1.000" and 1.250" and I can't remeber if it was the 0.750 or the 1.000", I don't think it was the 1.250" long one. Either way here are the numbers for the bushing from the Oilite catalog:

FF-1314-1 this is 0.750" in length
FF-1314-2 this is 1.000" in length
FF-1314-3 this is 1.250" in length

If you can't find one at a bearing supply house locally just let me know and I can drop by the one here and pick one up for you

It's 1" to the inside edge of the flange, so I'll have to look and see how they measure length.

Thanks, Bob

That would make it the FF-1314-2, 1.000" in length.

farmertan can make them, will just have to see what the total cost is. He is an excellent machinist and has the necessary tools.

Well I found the receipt for the bushings for the steering and it was less than $20 for all three. The upper bushing, lower bushing (flanged) and the thrust washer. Here is a link for Motion Industries, not where I got the Oilite bushings I used but I have dealt with the company in the past and their price is right on the mark:

Criswell,

Since you found the receipt, can you give us the part numbers for the upper bushing and thrust washer as well? Thanks.
