See below, still available from Simplicity parts. Need 4 @ $5.00 each. Unless you really like turning thin wall parts, probably easier just to buy then. Part # 16 in the pic

The last set I put in I justed pressed the old ones farther into the tube and put the new ones just flush with the end

Thanks Greg, that is what I was looking. I have a little wear on my spindle and was thinking of installing 2 each top and bottom for a total of 8. I have 2 tractors, AC 912 and AC 917 and was looking a little cheaper bushing to buy 16.

I did look at McMaster, their listings give nominal sizes for the diameters and then a tolerance. Did not match the listed sizes, I posted from SEPW. Might be a custom size.

It must be a special bushing, the nearest I can find is .753 x .878 in different lengths. Thanks for all the suggestions. There is a bearing shop in Raleigh I will try since I go there several times a week. Has anyone tried to build up the shafts when they are worn? I tried that but machine shop said they could not chuck it up in the lathe to turn it back down.

If they are really bad, try to find someone local who is parting out a tractor. Any machining fixes will be costly. It could be fixtured in a mill, and "turned" down using a boring head, maybe. or Bolted to a face plate on the lathe, with a support fixture, again in therory possible but time consuming. If you find one local you can save the shipping and make sure they are better than yours before you buy.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
