Re: Water Pump Question

Norm, that is the same article, however I never bothered to read the last part...Interesting that they don't recommend that you ream an oilite bearing, that's just what I was planning on doing to give the pump running clearance...I just recieved the oilite bearings from McMasters...Sure enough they have an exact 5/8"(.625) I.D., my new Stainless steel shaft has exactly the same O.D. (.625) so, no clearance...I didn't realize it but after measuring the unworn ends on a coupla old original shafts, they measure (.620 ) or .005 thousands under 5/8" for running/grease clearance....So guess the shaft will go back into the lathe.
