Whats the chance of eyeballing wheels for quartering. There are just so many spines
on the axles. I know a jig would be better and easier.

flyernut, that lower armature bushing in that chassis with the slots. I thought someone cut those in. Not so. I saw some for sale on ebay just like that one. Seller said they were early bushings. It s a factory bushing. You might have seen them before, I hadn't.

Those 1948 302s I got from you might have the slotted bushings. I have not had to take them apart. They run too good to mess with.

Using the connecting gear is more or less eye-balling..
