After a year of very slow progress on parts I am almost there

Where I am stuck is who sells the small end bush/bearing (conrod to piston)

Before anybody asks why replace if not broken ... For the record most of the bearings needed replacement so I replaced all of the bearings & whilst I dont want to spend money for no reason I also want this to be a good mechanical runner i.e. I am keeping this machine long term ... so for the sake of say $40-$50 dooooollars why leave in there

The ones in there appear fine but as mentioned with bearings, seals, pistons ,etc why wouldnt I whilst a complete rebuild

Your expert advice would be appreciated on where to find would be great

I would be surprized if anyone sells those bushes separate , probly need a whole rod . I know what your saying about the TOTAL rebuild , a good nights sleep an all that but , if there is nothing wrong with the bushes you will gain NOTHING but debt by replacing them........if you even can . Im sure a good engine reconditioner could sort that for you , maybe modify a bush off something else .

Most likely comes with the rod but as Mctool states any decent engine overhauler should be able to fix you up if not a bearing shop

Righto

All makes sense ... apologies for the newbie question

I have only been involved in 2 strokes in years gone by ...joke about that some other time but now that I am a big boy (old) this is the machine for me... which obviously a bit different (easier) than this exercise

Sorted

Top end bushes are usually pressed in, then reamed to size. Very important to ream them in the correct angle, then drill the oil holes, deburr, and add relief. All in all, not a simple task. Its not a do it yourself job, unless you have a proper machine shop in your garage. A new wrist pin will take up much of the wear anyway. Easy to find a new wrist pin, especially if you got a new set of pistons. Check the free play between a new wrist pin and the old bushing before you make the move. Changing out the top bushing just is not done too often, and finding a service to do it will be a bit of work in itself. E-bay rods from a low mileage motor will be much cheaper.

Cheers,
Phil

Update

The small end measured 1000 over max (not sure why so worn as not a high mileage machine which is why I bought it - that said no one knows full history unless owned from new ...maybe didn't keep up with oil maintenance) so whilst being balanced with new piston etc small end being replaced by engineer with the expertise and the gear - cost about extra $100 Nz dollars on balancing bla bla ... Both were necessary and worth it ... That was the last bearing in the whole machine that wasn't replaced anyway

The bush is apparently pretty standard as he made the call while I was there dropping off the crank ... Will update with details of the bush when I pickup for reference

sounds like a reasonable price to me :beer: not a complicated job but very time intensive to get it proper and of course you need the proper tools :mrgreen:

I put this in the FAQs now and then checked the '90 900SS parts catalogue. Other than the 750s parts catalogue the 900SS one lists the small end bush as #71110071A. I then googled the part number and found that it`s actually the same on many newer Ducs and no problem finding it.

It's the also same on the 906, 907ie, 900SS, 900SSie, 900 Monster, 900ie Monster, Cagiva Elefant 900 etc etc
All 4 valve engines have different bushes as seem to have the smaller engines.
The gudgeon pin of the 900SS (19mm diameter) & the 750S have different part numbers so the small end bushes might be different.
