people in lawton, oklahoma were soooo nice...

but couldn't get what we want here. can't stay here forever so we decided to move on to the next point. passing through texas with the indian in the van was a biggest disappointment for all of us. but shinya and niimie have got all planned out and i'm pretty sure the indian will run again soon.

the rollers/cages. Give them about .002" clearance against
the pin and maybe a bit less in the rods. Drill radial (and
maybe also axial to get some oil in there) oil holes in the
bushings, turn up the pump volume and ride carefully.

This may seem crazy, but Royal Enfield (albeit with higher
oil pressure) had this kind of big end bearing for years. This
was white metal coated - which would be luxury for the bronze
bushings above - but the principle is the same. I have even
heard of pieces of leather belt replacing rollers/cages in a

Let us know how it goes.
