I just located an new sleeve bearing for the rear bearing retainer from the Filling Station. It’s measurements are 1.565" OD X 1.445" ID X .083" THICK X .885" wide. In the description It stated “ If the clearance exceeds .010", the bushing should be replaced.” My yoke which rides on this bearing measures 1.435” which puts me at the maximum clearance. I suspect after its pressed in, the ID will close up a bit tightening the clearance.

My yoke does show a bit of wear, so now I wondering if the yoke is worn more than I think.

Does anyone know what this clearance should be, or have a known good yoke readily available to measure, so I at least have a measurement to compare mine too?

From what I see of that yoke, I wouldn't re-use it. Perhaps there is a speedy sleeve that would fit it or get another one. You only want to do this once.

It would be simple to set the yoke up in a lathe and machine the OD down about 1/8", then fabricate a sleeve to press over it. I'd suggest using a piece of stainless steel tubing for the sleeve and machine and finish-grind it to the proper OD after it's pressed on. That repair should outlast the rest of the truck with no wear concerns. Drop me a PM and I'll be glad to do that for you if you like.

The part number listed on my Rear Bearing Retainer is 591634. I don’t know the difference between the two. Maybe a fellow “Bolter” could tell us.

[Edit] I looked up the parts in the Master Parts Catalog and the casting is listed as 591634 and the part number is listed as 591633, one and the same!

Problem Solved! I just receive from a fellow “Bolter” an GM NOS Rear Bearing Retainer and a used yoke in good condition to match.

For the benefit of fellow “Stovebolters” looking for the same info, the OD of the yoke measures 1.435” and the ID of the new Rear Bearing Retainer measures 1.4405” giving a final clearance of .0055”.

Thanks to all that gave me some advice!
