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.

If anyone needs his bushings I will sale them until they are gone. Mil (at his e-mail addresss or [email protected])"

His wife, Mil, posted this on another thread re: his funeral arrangements, so it appears there are still some available.
