Dec 23, I would assume that the grease zerk is in the middle of the bush, so you should have to push the grease only 3 1/4", however, your also pushing it through a" space, which I would think is too small. That would probably be a good oil clearance, but depending on the viscosity of the grease you're using, that could be to little.
Bushing Clearance. Typically bearing internal clearance is defined as the total distance through which one ring can be moved radially (radial internal clearance) or axially (axial internal clearance) in relation to the other ring under a defined measuring load. In the case of bushings, this is not so. Since bushings are of single piece construction, any clearance found would be from the radial movement of the shaft that rides within the bushing. Jan 01, First; about a thousandths of an inch clearance per inch is enough to keep things from binding.
Second; always put grease clearance cuts in the pin, on the side ninety degrees to the worn areas. Make sure the grease cut emptys on the side opposite the grease fitting too. Third; never install short bushings. Operating clearance 1) Guideline values depending on selected shaft and housing tolerances: metric bushings; inch bushings; Excessive clearance may have a negative influence on the service life of PTFE composite bushings if they are not lubricated.
Cast bronze bushing.
Permissible operating temperature range to + °C ( to + °F). Jul 06, I need the clearance between the ID of the bushing and the OD of the dowel pin to be as small as possible. I can only lube the bushing once at. assembly and then never again. I would prefer that the maximum clearance between the dowel pin OD and the bushing ID is not over" but I may be able to get away with". Dec 14, It may be solid or liquid, and these will affect the properties of the grease.
In addition, the reasoning is that the fit is tight and the clearance is small, which leads to discoloration of the grease: Tight fit, small working (residual) clearance, increased bearing load area, heat generation, degeneration of grease, and change of grease color. shaft +” for the bearings” total clearance variation possible due to mating part manufacturing tolerances.

Aug 13, MikeMech (Mechanical) 26 Jul 02 A general rule of thumb for bronze journal bushings is" clearance on the diameter per inch of shaft diameter up to the first 5" or so.
On larger shafts, less. I'd make the bushing ID about" oversize (after.
Mar 26, The oil clearance is the gap between the inside diameter of an installed bearing and the outside diameter of the crankshaft or camshaft journal. The clearance is measured 90 degrees to the bearing parting line, which is the thickest part of the bearing (bearing thickness tapers slightly toward the.
