Flywheel "cone nut" bush

Post by Pickles »

The bushes for the flywheel cone nuts have seen better days. I would like to replace them but it seems they are unavailable. I was thinking of using shim material as a replacement. Can anyone give me guidance on whether this is a good idea or should I try to machine new bushes?

Used brass shim to make a couple of replacements years ago with no problems.
Good luck.
