Pylon Swivel Bushings

Pylon Swivel Bushings - Early style

** PRE-ORDER **

I have sold out of the first batch and will be having more machined shortly... stay tuned.
Feel free to post in this thread if you are interested, or you can email me directly.


The price will be $56 shipped to anywhere in the lower 48 states.
Please contact me for shipping quotes to other locations.

Email is best: benjaminharder at yahoo.com



The bushings are machined out of Delrin by a local shop to my specifications that match the factory bushing. The fit is just about perfect and has been test fit to several different MC Prostars including a 1989 190, a 1992 190, and my 1994 205. I believe this same bushing was used into the earlier 2000's, but please double check your dimensions to be certain. The bushing will fit the early single-bolt-in-the-middle style pylon as well as the multi-bolt studded looking pylon cap (which is still a single thread in the middle to hold the cap in place).

After plenty of searches and calls it became apparent that the pylon swivel bushings are no longer available. The bushing on my 94 205 had seen better days and I was determined to find a solution. I decided to recreate a 3D model of the bushing and create a drawing to send out for quote. The original Nylon material held up ok, but I decided to go with Delrin due to its excellent wear and durability.

The bushings measure approximately 1.19 inches tall and are 2.44 inches in diameter at the bottom (largest diameter). The pylon post that the bushing pivots on will measure 1.0 inches in diameter.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks everyone for the interest. I had a feeling that there would be quite a few others like myself that would appreciate a fresh new bushing. I'm just happy to help out.

I will be ordering more very soon. For those that have purchased one please check back and let me know how you like the bushing.

For anyone that would like a bushing, please post your interest on this thread or feel free to email me or PM me directly. I will keep everyone posted when the next bushings will be ready.

Thanks
