Tim, you surely mean 3/4" pipe, but then the bore is much larger than 5/8".

I'm sure that is what me means. In this case, that isn't a major drawback. If cut to the proper length, the bolt can be tightened so the pipe/bushing won't move on the bolt. The pipe OD is just a bit over 1 inch. It will probably fit in the hole of the arm and take up a little wear.

On the other hand, a steel bushing 3/4 x 1 x 2 is pretty easy to find and can be cut to length. Many places with a decent bolt/hardware section will have it or can get it. Just be sure not to pick up one that is 3/4 x 1 x 1-1/2.

I put a flanged bronze bearing on my right side rockshaft extension where the rod to the lifting lever arm of my 54 Leveling and Grader blade attaches as the hole was wallowed out and the rod had a deep groove worn into it. I drilled the hole larger and installed the bearing and welded up the groove in the rod end and ground it back to shape. So far, so good.

I also bought a set of molded delrin rockshaft bearings from Barnyard about 5 years ago for the front and rear rockshaft (manual lift). They don't show any appreciable wear. I haven't added any grease zerks and continue to periodically apply oil squirts at all other relevant points so long as they aren't getting too sloppy. I expect both fixes to last the rest of my life at least.
