pins and bushings for 420-440

Post by scottbranch » Mon Mar 09, 2015 7:07 pm

Has anyone found a good decent priced supply. Has any one used Dow tubing for bushings I have found a company in ohio offering 1.57" od 1.00id already rock hardened to 78 in 12 ft length. What are your thoughts

OD is too big, ID is probably a little tight, and 78 is too hard from what I have found.
I have beat the alternative idea to death for several years trying to cut out the middleman, I am done with it, it just can't be done economically. If I had all my time devoted to it back, I could buy 10 sets of pins and bushings.
I have worked with one of my suppliers to tool them up, and now have them available in the $1200 range for both sides. Supply is limited due to low production, but normally available.

Lavoy, is that rough price including labor? Not wanting to offend you with stupid questions, but just don't know. My 420 appears to have pretty good UC, but the track is snaky. Pins and bushings have been turned already.

Sorry, should have caught that, add about $400 labor, depends on repairs.

Lavoy,

Are these pins and bushings still available? My crawler has been a slow restoration with all that is left is this.

Let me know how to get my hands on some.

Sporadic, but yes.
