    About five years ago my brother in law bought a trashed JD STX38. The bearings had long since gone and had eaten out the housings. Just for grins I turned him a set of bronze sleeve bearings captured...

    I do have a Granger account but the only time I use them is if I need to match up some kind of oddball motor where I actually need to eyeball the thing. They do have a good selection of motors that...
