12/12 Champhering bushing edge for lubricant proper flow           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

Oil retention chamfer being cut with our new mill on one of the new journal brasses for the third truck. This chamfer does not go clear to the end of the brass, so it keeps oil swept up by the rotating axle from flowing off the ends of the brass, and adding little to the lubrication of the axle.
