    Hi all,

    I’m rebuilding the transmission on the ’36 1601 and one of the clutch release arm bearings is toast.  I’ve come up with two options (in lieu of the unavailability of originals):

    1. Needle roller bearings – shorter than the original so I’ll need two per side and the diameter is less than the 1-1/8″ housing, so I’ll have to machine a sleeve.

    2. Oil-lite style iron-copper bearings.  There is no rotational loading, but there is some tangential loading due to the way the lever action of the clutch arm operates.


    Thanks in advance,
