Brief Description:  Turning Wheel Bushings and Thrust Washers

Turned bushings down a bit becase the ID was right on 1.500" whereas the axle OD is 1.510". During the process of trial and error fitting, I found that one of the hubs were out of round by ~.005 so I had to cut one set of bushings a bit more than the other in order to fit as the bushing would egg a bit when installed, making it too tight to slip on the axle.

The oilite thrust washers were purchsed from Kaman Industrial Technology in Tulsa. They were available in 2.5" OD x 1.5" ID x .125"... perfect! Just had to turn ~.010" off the ID and .500 off the OD (2.0") in orded to have a perfect fit.

Note: There is an extra set in the washer bin.
