A shot of the new thrust bearings that have been machined up for our Plymouth Model BL. The bearings had to be made so they could come apart to be placed around the axles since there are no plans to remove the wheels from the axles.
Here we see the bearing separated into its two halves so it can be installed. The pins sticking out from the bearing will hold it together and the Zerk grease fitting will provide grease for the bearing. The purpose of these bearings are to prevent the axle from moving from side to side and go between the wheels and the axle bearing boxes.
