After 2 seasons and about 23,000 miles my bushings are shot. The pics are for the outboard one, the inboard one looks a lot better.
I'm not sure what went wrong, I did the 1,000 mile re-adjust. Slight tightening was required at that point.
Here's the outboard race cleaned up with scoring visible.
And here is the bronze bushing, the deep scores run all the way round it.
At this point I'm leaning strongly towards giving the bushings a second try but I'm hoping that some of you guys who have done this a few times might be able to tell me what went wrong.
