I have received a request for help from an OLC Member in Wales.
He is looking for a source of supply for the Split Bronze cylinder bearings as fitted to many of the older side wheel mowers. Does anyone know of a supplier who can supply these from stock?
He is also asking the question when re assembling the bearings into the side plates do you position the adjustment slot to the front or the rear of the machine, his machine was assembled with the slots at the top so that the adjusting screw was passing through the slot and not doing any good, I have suggested the rear and looking at the parts list elsewhere on this site it tends to support my theory.
Any thoughts from other members with experience of this bearing arrangement?
