        Are you looking for the bushing that goes into the back of the crankshaft?

        Yeah, that's where I got mine. It was still listed on eBay a few weeks ago when I checked.

              If you have a friend with a lathe they should not be difficult to make. height should not be critical. Basic lathe skills

              Does anyone have dimensions?

                Thanks I found the dimensions, trying to take the lazy way approach, but you bring up a good idea I will see if I can have some made.

                  That would be Pat Blaise, from near Monroe, Washington, in my area. He rebuilt my 727 about 10 years ago. I've been trying to contact him. He had an Ebay store, T'Flite Patty's.

                    I can since I have one.

                    OD - 1.810
                    ID - 1.550
                    Width - .490

                    With chamfers at each ID opening.

                    Timken LM12711 looks like it would work. It's the correct OD, but has a listed ID of .859, but remember, it's tapered and the ID is measured from the "small" end.
