Nose Gear Pivot Bushings

Hi everyone.


I have been tracking the side play in my Long EZ nose gear and am nearing the conclusion that the NG23 Bronze bearing/bushings are worn. I reviewed the plans (P 13-1) and don't see any real specifications other than they appear to be .5" ID. I suspect that they are readily available "standard" flanged bearings. Does anyone know any more?


Thanks for any suggestions.



PS I measure side play at the NG 15 casting and it has increased from about +/- .060" to +/-.125" since the last Annual Inspection. First flight was March 86 and now has about 1260 hrs. It has been trouble free. I have never had to do any other maintenance on the nose gear system.
