    Can tell what type of bronze I need to machine wrist pin bushes
    Thanks Colin:)
  2. You used to be able to buy a semi finished stock from Sealed Power. Not sure if that is so now. I stopped bushing them and ran the rod and pin steel on steel. There is not enuf action to cause any trouble at all . My old boss who taught me my auto machine stuff ran chevies that way for many years so I used it on my mopars as well Never , not once ever in 47 years did I have wear or gauling despite what one would think. Now I only use bushings if the rod already has them.
