How much??


Now that the sleeve drive crank is being made, we need the bearings to accurately size the component. The large diameter bearing is an American made imperial bearing, only available from a specialist importer.

I mailed them and duly received a quotation for £326. Plus VAT. Plus £10 postage. Total price £400.

How much? Feck me!

So, plan B. A quick search around the web showed no metric equivalent bearings, but a couple that were close. After marking those dimensions on the plans with Bob, we found an alternative that will work. Press a couple of buttons on my phone and it’s in the post.

£142 delivered. Result!!

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
