New Era Bushing

Plastic Bushing (black color) for the New Era Rope Machine. Replaces the ball bearing mounted in the center of the housing. The bearing (bushing) is the center of rotation for the ring gear. Both the front housing and the ring gear have "fingers" to hold the bearing. Today's standard bearings won't fit, nor can the fingers be moved. The original bearing is "out of inventory" with the major US bearing companies. Use this bushing if you are missing the bearing, or the bearing is frozen and non-restorable. Part Number P8.
