Ramcoa HP8359 Radius rod bushings.

Postby MadMike » Thu Oct 05, 2017 5:33 pm

Has anyone used the blue thermoplastic bushings with the black plastic washer/cup?
Moog K8006 is probably what it is more popularly known as. Mevotech is good at reboxing as well, but for a much more modest(half of moog) cost.

My understanding is the plastic ring has the cupped side go over the swage/swedged portion of the radius rod bracket. But I thought the radius rod bracekt on the '70 F-250(2wd) was cast steel, not a stamping, thus no swedge. So what side does the cup go on? And then which of the bushings mounts with the plastic ring? Large or small? Bushings on the '70 F-250 are completely shot, there are just rings of cracked 'rubber' with no discernible size differences from dry rot.

I'll see if I can locate or contact an engineer or tech support at Ramcoa or Moog for an answer. But if a member has experience with these bushings any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I saw your post/thread before, however the Ramcoa HP8359 kit(Moog K80006) uses the two different sized conical bushes.

I *think* the larger conical bushing is mounted between the radius cupped washer and frame bracket on the forward/leading side, with the plastic washer and smaller conical bush on the rear side with the flat washer and castle nut. However Moogs own YT vid shows the bushings in either position. :?
