  • Bonded Rubber (Metalastic) Bushes

    Does anyone know of a supplier of imperial sized bonded rubber bushes similar to those used in Greeves swing arm (but not the same, sadly). I've tried all the usual places, (simply bearings, RS components, plus loads more) and googled til blue of face and red of finger, but no luck. can find metric sized ones that are close but not close enough.

    Looking for 0.51" I.D. 1.035"O.D, 1.75" outer length, 2.00" inner length. (inner can be shorter, I can make spacers)

    Metric sizes would be 12.97mm ID, 26.289mm OD, 44.45mm Outer length, 51mm inner length

    Any help much appreciated

          Hi John yes I had a good look on the Robush website, couldn't find the sizes I'm looking for but will give them a ring when the holidays are over, I've got plenty of other jobs to do on it in the meantime!
          thanks anyway, Jeff

                Worth a try at Land Rover/Range Rover agents, they use many rubber bushes, many years ago several of us and myself used their panhard rod bushes for Sw/Arm bushes with a little machining

                  Many thanks for the suggestions, I hadn't spotted the Trelleborg site, Phil, but will have a look.
                  I've been in touch with Gary and he is going to look at his stock after the hols, VS list the sizes of the large and small Greeves S/A bushes and they're different to what I need, sadly, John.
                  Plenty of Land Rover agents in Dorset, I'll have a trawl round, good shout!

                  Happy New Year
