Default Re: 47 generator rear bushing

Hi Henry, nice to see you are still alive mate. Make sure you lube that new bush before you press it in the end housing. Sit it vertical on one thumb and fill to the top with engine oil and then press down on the top of the bush with your other thumb so that the oil comes through the pores of the bush to the outside. Or soak the bush in engine oil for at least 24 hours. The first method really gets the oil into it completely. If you don't do this then the bush will wear out quickly. Some bushes are just solid brass so that wont be able to get any oil through it in that case, depends what bush you have. Regards, Kevin.
