I am in the middle of re-bushing a ciment mixer suport arm. The arm is cast iron with a 7/8" shaft about 4" long piercing the casting. I have machined the casting to accept a 1.24o" bushing with a 7/8" hole for the afore mentioned shaft.
Ok now the questions. What should i make these bushing out of? Would just a metal bushing be ok? It is just a ciment mixer and there is a grease zert.
