Can some one give me the "technical" name for this bushing? It's bimetal, bronze on the inside,steel on the outside. Split down the center lengthwise on one size. Pretty much a standard size. 1" i.d. x 1.188 o.d. x 1" long. I need to find a few of them and all I can find when I search for bronze bushing is just that. A solid bronze bushing. Thanks

Mutt!

If it is like the Big Twin transmission maindrivegear bushing, such things are often referred to by the un-technical name of the OEM manufacturer for both H-D and the major auto industry: Clevite.

Hote that helps,

try looking for 'steel backed bronze bush' and then split if you have to many hits
