Re: Bronze oilite bushing

It took me three trips to NAPA, but I finally got the last two bronze bushings that they had locally. I had to try more than one store.

69 SS, 350/300 h.p., M-20, 12 bolt, matching numbers.

Re: Bronze oilite bushing

I had my local independent auto parts store order 2 of them for me a couple of years ago. One is in the car now, the other is a spare for later.

Re: Bronze oilite bushing

I have true sintered bronze bushings if your local NAPA can't get them for you.

Best I have seen is the regular napa bushing looks like the GM 10125896 . The HD Napa PB-656-HD has little slots in the bearing , where the input shaft rides, this is good for cooling the way I see it.. It also has a little lip on it that I use as a wear indicator.
Prefer the Napa HD over the GM but they both are the aluminum bronze type.

Re: Bronze oilite bushing

Thanks Don. I called Autogear and they recommended I go to my local Napa and order the HD bushing only because after shipping and tax (I'm in NY also) it wouldnt be cost effective. Great guys up there. I think the part# is actually BRG B 652HD ?

Forgot to mention, this is a Federal Mogul part number. I would try Autozone, PartsAmerica and the such. Its not a Napa only part number , . Thats what is on the old box.
