Well, I searched and couldn't find the answer. I have the Bently manual for early bus on a CD ROM but I think it may be missing some pages?

I need to press in new link pin bushings and I noticed the ones in the spindle are pressed in at random positions- the hole in the bushing doesn't line up with the zirk fitting. Does this matter? Does the groove on the back of the bushing correct this?

EDIT- spindles are on a '60

I'm starting to get little wafts of bus stink coming from the north. Something about the unique scent of drivers seat padding when it's glued together with mouse piss and shit that really gets me going... and I'm smelling it! Oh yeah! Time to start loading up the equipment.

That must be why the bearings look like garbage. I noticed shims missing, too. Thanks!

The groove make sure the grease gets where it needs to be. But thats no excuse to abuse it, line it up as close as possible.
