Thanks! That was what I was looking for. It seems like a good Idea but I 
realized a bearing of this type would need to be packed with grease. Could 
it last 60 or 70 thousand miles? I didn't think so. Besides, What problem is 
it fixing? What's wrong with the brass...

Chris a friend has a Morgan 4/4 and the ford engine has a pin bearing
pilot. He hates the thing and wants a brass Bush type.  Seems the
bearing breaks up and he has had to pull the engine several times to
replace it.   I think its one of those things that sounds alot better
than it works.
