The (4) bearings supplied replace the worn brass bush type bearing found in most roundhouse loco's with a Flanged Roller bearing, by replacing the old brass bushing will eliminate the need for oiling also eliminating oil running onto the loco's wheel and onto the track.
- Much improved timing
- Never needs replacing
- Never needs oiling
- Eliminated, oil running down the side of the wheel onto the track
- No rear end wobble due to bushings been flogged out.
- smooth running
- Longer steam run times (due to improved timing)
- Loco runs on less boiler pressure (less resistance)
ID 6.350 mm (1/4")
OD 9.525 mm (3/8") Installation requires a 3/8" Reamer.
Do not use a 3/8" drill bit as it will drill oversize leading to an out of tolerance hole for a press fit, you must use a 3/8 reamer as this will allow the flanged bearing to be a pressed into the chassis side frames.
Chassis frames must be clamped together as a left and right matching set before reaming out to 3/8".
