Custom made CNC Bushes
Manufactured from 440 grade stainless steel with Rockwell hardness of 60HRC
Machined to 8mm (8.02mm ) to within 0.001mm tolerances. These are made .02 of a mm oversize to ensure a snug fit with out warping the gearbox from over tension. We recommend a light press or bearing tool for installation. Do not Impact with a hammer or blunt force tooling to ensure no damage is caused to the gearbox. There is no need to glue the bushes into place on high quality gearbox housings.
Suits V2 and V3 style gearboxes
Includes 6x Bushes
Stainless bushes must be lubricated with a high quality bearing and gear grease. We highly recommend Nulon Xtreme Performance Grease with PTFE (L80) which is a blend of Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fluorocarbon particles in a specially prepared lithium-based, water-repellent grease.
L80 keeps water and dust out while a plating of PTFE is applied to the mating surfaces under working conditions. Seal performance is improved and operating temperature reduced, resulting in less grease "throw". L80 is the perfect grease for our CNC bushes and gears.
L80 has a continuous temperature operating range of -9°C to 150°C
