I need to rebush a distributor shaft on a 40 year old Lucas distributor.
The original bush was sintered iron, pressed in then honed in-situ. As I'm having difficulty sourcing sintered iron what are your thoughts on using sintered phospher bronze? As it runs at half engine speed we're talking top rpm of 3000. The shaft has helical oil ways which are deep enough to survive the light cylindrical grinding I'll need to give it to clean up the surface.
