Front Axle Pivot Bushing

Postby superman » Mon May 22, 2017 9:55 am

I am working on my Super AV, which has the heavy duty adjustable front axle. Does any one have a source for the front axle pivot bushings? Ref. # 26, Part # 60386DR in manual. The only place I can find them online is Bates Corporation for $104.00/EA. That's ridiculous price. Or maybe you guys have some suggestions for a "farm" fix. Thanks.

If you can take your axle and pin to a machine shop (job shop) they should be able to do some measuring and make one cheaper than that. Just guessing, a piece of material would probably be around $25-$40 to make it out of and it shouldn't take long to make it.

Okay thanks, I may have to look into doing that instead of buying something. Do you happen to know if it should be bronze, brass or other?

If it has a grease fitting brass or bronze will work, if it doesn't have a grease fitting then I'd go with oilite bronze, it has oil impregnated into the bronze.
