Re: tripple gear bushings conversion to needle bearings

A little OT, but I have to say... Other posts have talked about SCAT cranks and one mentioned 4000 rpm from a T engine being possible. I believe it's true, but I have great hesitation about spinning the 100 year old tech of the Ford planetary transmission at those speeds !! I've ridden in Robert We...

Re: tripple gear bushings conversion to needle bearings

If you want to call a design that was made over 15,000,000 times and survives in extrordinary numbers to this day a "bad design", I think you're being a bit harsh, don't you think?

Sometimes you just have to sleep on the problem before you can come up with a fix. I had all these parts in my parts bin and with a little bit of brazing and some ingenuity the new part works better than the old one does.

Your local hydraulics shop should have something to replace it.
