Check mcmaster.com or another industrial supply website. I'd be surprised if you could find timkens at a local consumer chain store. Even for the bearing industry they are kind of specialty.

I was going through my hobby RC box and found a pack of these bearings.
5/16 x 1/2 x 5/32 Sealed and still oily. I used to use these bearings as rollers for Tamiya cars that run on a track.

I have 5.. so if anyone needs one, i can ship it for $3 via paypal.
If you need more than one, add $1 for each addition bearing.

Does anyone know the thread specs on the push rod? I'm thinking of doing away with my spongy clevis entirely and ordering a solid unit like one seen here, in conjunction with the cool bearing mod:

http://www.mcmaster.com/#rod-ends/=5ssxb7

They are not expensive, $5 - $8 mostly.

Its an M8x1.5, according to my notes.

I looked into doing this but couldn't find a clevis with the right thread, and there is also the issue of the stock clevis being quite long compared to most off the shelf parts. I ended up just welding the stock one.

I looked at those options on mcmaster before and well the stock one is much longer than those available above. Plus the threading on most of the mcmaster clevis' are not metric.

I was inspired by this thread to do a little bit of research in case anyone wanted some more options. With some trial and error I came up with the following parts that may work well for most people. I found 2 clevis rod ends with the proper M8x1.25 RH thread, one is .25" shorter than stock, and one is .25" longer than stock. You would have to look at your rod end to see how many threads you have to determine whether to get the shorter or longer one. I did a test fit on my rod and I found the longer one to be good for me, since I was nearly all the way backed out with my stock unit.

They both have 5/16" ID pin holes and have about 5/16" in between the two flanges. They accept the Koyo B-55 bearing as discussed in the above posts. I wrote the websites and part numbers for ordering in the pictures, but in case it's not very legible, I'll repeat them here:

Koyo B-55 bearing - $6.18
www.applied.com
Item # 7393291

Longer clevis rod end - $6.70
www.midwestcontrol.com
Item # 28024077

Spring clevis pin for above rod end - $4.68 sold separately
www.midwestcontrol.com
Item # SP2802

Shorter clevis rod end - $6.87 (spring clip pin included with this part)
www.mcmaster.com
Item # 2448K48

By the way Midwest Control Products has a large range of sizes and I believe they can do custom sizes as well. I recommend you give them a look for special projects.

Here is a shot of the assembled rod end with pin and B-55 bearing:

Nice find on that midwestcontrols clevis. I am guessing that most people will want the longer than stock one, I know I only have a few threads of engagement on my stock clevis.

I just got one of the speedsource extended pushrods to hopefully fix that issue, but I may have to replace my clevis as well. Although I did get mind welded this winter, so between that and the pushrod it may not be worth it.

Edit: Have you installed this yet? I looked at my last post, and I had thought the thread was M8x1.5 not 1.25, but I could have been wrong. Is it actually 1.25?

Yes I installed it. It's M8x1.25.
