I am not at my shop to look this up in my notes, and I am struggling to search the internet for these sizes on my phone, so can someone list for me the finished sizes for the bushings. I am at an equipment dealer who is offering me a deal on some Sunnen hones if I know what size(s) I need. Thanks.

The transmission book says only that clearance should be from .002 for new to .005" for repair. So I went out to the barn and measured some drums and shafts. The part of the low drum where the reverse drum rides is 2.300". The shaft from the brake holding the driven gear, where the low drum rides, is 1.650". The transmission shaft is 1.000". Those numbers are my best guesses. The wear varied on the several pieces I measured, so one or more of the measurements may be off a few thousandths. Maybe somebody else can find a reference that confirms or corrects what I found.

Brett- the main shaft is 1" so an SL960 mandrel will work for that or the equivalent lifetime mandrel. I'm not at the shop either, but that may help a little.

Brake cylender and small engine yes slower but works on every one

I would suggest you take the brass parts to be honed to a machine shop where they can assure perfect alignment. Free hand honing can be done but may not be true.

I agree with you David, -and what you may not realize is, -this is my machine shop. This picture was captured this morning off my security camera. We are a machine shop that has capability of pouring babbitt (rods & mains), grinding crankshafts, and all other facets of the machine work in-house. The reason I initiated this thread was that I was at a engine machinery dealer in NC who had some tooling for sale that fit my Sunnen LBB699, but I was unsure of the sizes I needed. Several folks sent me texts and called me with the sizes I needed. Thanks to everyone who offered assistance.

Thanks Dan, that is exactly what I am trying to do now is replace my SL series mandrels with the Lifetime mandrels where I can replaces shoes, etc. as needed. SL series seem to be abundant around here with the used equipment dealers but the P series with truing sleeves in the sizes I need, ...not so much. :-)

Brent, I love that shot of the beetle body. It almost makes the shape attractive!

Dan, I purchased two 2G-P28 mandrels, but everything else that he had was odd-ball sizes that I, -nor anyone else apparently wants. Joe Baker and Dan Cavalieri seem to have the most mandrels. Dan has an eBay store called e-cavco but he will deal way better off of eBay.

Mark is right, they take their morning break from 9:00-9:15. Maybe you can see workers in these pix taken a tad earlier? Yes, we did take a few afternoon breaks to go watch the eclipse. Wasn't that impressive in our area though.
