I replaced the 2 bearings on the other end of the plunger rod (the ones that run on the plunger itself) this spring on my 68. Wood rails make it a bit harder to do. I had to loosen the rails so the plunger would slide easier on the wood over the part of the rail that is not shiney. Had to use a come-a-long to pull it out. Not that hard, just cumbersome so the come-a-long keeps it aligned better during the pull so it does not get wedged. Once out, had to cut the old bearings along the inside length with a sawsall, then knocked them out once relieved. Then pressed in the new bearings (still avail from NH). Then sharpen the knife while you have it out (you have to remove the knife anyway to get access to push the pin out). Put it back together and push it back into the chute. I used the come-a-long on the re-install also, makes it easier to keep it aligned and not mess up the wood wedges going back in.
