The e27 "bearings" are simple bushings made from plastic (delrin or similar). Any machinist can make them for you if you supply ID, OD, and length. I know that KKMI has made some for e27s...

Buzz's bushings should work fine (if he will make them)--he will cut them with a C&C lathe to the original dimensions. You may need to trim length (sand or cut with bandsaw)

Even if your hull had a "spinner" in the past thus enlarging the hole for them, you should still be OK, as bushings should be glued (ie: vinylester) into the hull.

Hi Everyone,
