    I tried to find one here in Sweden but they all tell me they only have the needle bearing and I want the bronze bushing.
    I think the needle bearing pn is 14061685 and I DO NOT want that.
    The bronze bushing pn is 3752487.
    Is there someone of you who can buy one and send it to me I will send you cash of course or is there someone who knows where online to buy one.
    I need it to put my 465 in my m1008.

    I'd be happy to give you a hand, but it would have to wait at least a week or so until I can get it. Im not gonna be back by the dealership until then. Is that OK?

    On a side note, GMPartsDirect does not carry that bushing or ship overseas unless to APO/FPO.

    why would you want the solid bearing instead of the roller?

    FWIW, I run the pilot bearing in my 6.2 and have for the last (almost) 4 years. Tranny is out now and the pilot bearing still looks just fine.

    The only real reason to run the oil light bushing is if he runs mud. The bearing is better if it doesn't see mud and crap that would get into the bearing and make an early life for it.
