Farmall M WFE Pivot Pin Bushings

Ok guys so I am rebuilding the factory IH wide front on an M. This has the tie rods in the rear. Anyway, The center tube had alot of play on the pivot pin so I ordered a new pin and bushings. Once I pulled it apart, the old pin is in really good shape but the bushings are pretty worn. My problem is that the bushings look like the ID was always too big...not just worn that much.

I got the new bushing from the local auto parts supplier that has always been real good about bushings, bearings and seals. I was trying to avoid spending $86 for them from IH. I gave them #48841D part number, they crossed that to FP-
A27846 (package says Piston Pin Bushing but I guess it would work). These bushings have an ID of 1.3125" and the shaft measures 1.1875" Did they cross reference the bushing wrong or did these really have that much clearance to begin with???

Still to loose. Should fit like you think it should. Just get some brass bushings from an after market supplier, or this site and then hone to fit if needed.

If its the wide front like was used on a 400 ETC. does the pin fit the pivot casting holes? From memory I think the pin should measure around 1.230 to 1.250 diameter and bushings around 1.230 ID. If the axle tube holes have no damage from running to long with bad bushings, in the past have needed to hone bushings for pin fit after installing. Hope my memory is not off on the sizes.

More likely the clearance should be in the neighborhood of .005 to .010.

I looked up the specs on the new pivot pin and it should be 1.232" but that still leaves me about .080" clearance with the bushings. That seem right or still too much clearance???
