I am rebuilding a 1973 HD GOLF cart engine. I have found and purchased everything but the connecting rod bearing to the crankshaft. Any ideas where I could find one. Or find one close where I could hone the connecting rod out a bit so it would work?
Buggiesunlimited only has the piston side of the rod bearing which I bought. I need the bearing that connects the rod and the crankcase together. It's a needle bearing that is caged. Thanks to all who replied!
They have the bearing that connects the piston to the rod. It'the bearing that is between the rod and the crankshaft. It is a caged pin bearing.
It goes inside the rod and then the crank pin is pressed into the crank on both sides.
The only other thing I can suggest is trying Parts4Carts. The sell used golf cart parts and have a lot of used Harley Davidson Golf Cart Parts. They may have a good used bearing. Parts4Carts.com - Used Golf Cart Parts!
Vintagegolfcarts.com Shows one on their site but they have run out. I requested a used crank from them and the bearing. I don't know if they have a source. It sounds like they do. So I'm hoping they come through for me. Thanks for your help. They buy lots of old new stock as well as used parts. I called them and explained my situation and the guy that answered explained to me what to do. I did it and received a confirmation email right away. They seem like nice people.
