    Rocket,
    This seems like a simple approach. I've passed it on to the IA.
    Thanks

    Brian,
    I found a couple of pictures in Andy's restoration thread, but not of the assembled system. Message #260 shows the worn mounting plates and message #292 shows the mounting plates after drilling them. Given the description above, I think I see what you are doing but a picture would be nice if it's not to much bother.

    Thanks
    Dean

    The only two pictures I can find...



    Everything installed...



    And a close up, with the old pin...
    You can see the bearing (bushing)... it is a flanged bearing with the flanges on the inside taking up what used to be the spacer washers... I got the bearings through MSC direct and shortened them in my lathe to the original tab thickness.. The pin is a new Univair replacement...

    For some odd reason I can not edit my post above...

    Here is a link to what I think is the correct bushing I ordered, have not been able to find my original invoice with the part number...
