Greetings,
Just wondering if one of you chaps might be able to enlighten me
with regards to the bearing material used in the construction of
the Stuart and Turner 10v engine,Is it cast? Or posibly extruded
And can it be purchased from another source, Perhaps by the foot?,
thanks,

Hi Charlie
 
I built the 10V many years ago.
 
I am sure the bearings are extruded brass but do not know what grade of brass.
 
Don't think you can purchase anywhere else, not that I have seen anyway.

Hi There
I expect Stuart might sell it by the foot if asked.
regards David
