Fred, do you recall how this was manufactured? Fully machined, investment cast etc.. ? (don't say printed lol). It looks rough cut in areas (the ends).
Has one successfully been used for a good long period of time and what was the lube method actually used if you know? I'd consider a sealed permanently lubed bearing if one was available the correct size.
I looked for the thread but can't seem to locate it. But I am interested if it's a proven part as I have a pretty new 6 speed engine. My memory fails me but I thought Brian? May have run one?
