Improved RAF mast bushings for sale


RAF, turbo subaru 230hp
The current RAF mast bushing is really soft and it splits after a short time in service,I removed mine and measured the Shore hardness and
found it was only 53.0. I have made a replacement that has a steel bushing incorporated into the molding process and, this urethane bushing has a shore rating

of 70.0. Hopefully these changes will make the bushing perform better and last longer. I have been flying with the new bushing and appears to me

that the vibration level is quite a bit better. Anyway I have them for sale.

The price is $20.00 plus shipping.Contact me by the email listed below and include your shipping address. I will send you an email when it has been

shipped and will include the total price. Just send the check to the address below.

Eddie had a fixed wing accident in February and did not survive.

I don't know what was done with the bushings.

Perhaps someone on the Rotary Wing Forum can help out.

Best of luck on your search.

I miss Eddie a lot.
