Dear All;
First TY for all the great members on this site. I learn much by reading. I have an extremely nice 29 KJ formerly owned by Joe Kohler (Wisconsin). Oil is leaking around the bronze bushing on the shaft from the front of the motor to the generator. Now it is leaking enough that a light coating of oil now slings off the shaft. After a short several mile ride the entire left front half of the motor is covered with fresh oil. How difficult is it to replace this bushing and where may I find a new one?
