Sierra triangle steering column bearing

Hi guys,

I have a Sierra triangle upper column and need to sort out the support.
Itís currently sat through a rose joint but doesnít sit very well and just rubs round the hole.

Iím looking to replace this for a proper bearing that the triangle section would sit in nicely, anyone have any bright ideas as I canít find anything.

Thanks

Iíve used a pillow bearing with the same diameter as the original Sierra plastic bushing. I guess you may no longer have the plastic bushing though.

I think some companies do offer a bearing that has a similar diameter to the three points of the triangle, so that it sits snuggly inside. However, I may be wrong about this!

There was a post on here somewhere suggesting a self aligning bearing which I have used on my car , helps considerably with self entering as well

The Sierra bush is available as part of a kit but itís not cheap

eBay Item

The bearing is a 25mm self aligning pillow block bearing then you take a tiny bit of the bush for a nice snug fit.

Hi, i have loads of the bush kits ( i brought them when they where £1.50 ) give me address ill pop one in post FOC.

PS yes it is a 25mm or 1" bearing requires for the bush to fit in. 1" 25.4mm is perfect.
