Windbugger Wind Generator Parts

Hi, I am looking for that part for my Windbugger that the bushings go into, or even just the bushings themselves. Anybody help or any ideas, please?

Re: Windbugger Wind Generator Parts

I’d take it to a Bearing/Industrial supply distributer. I highly doubt that “Bugger Bob” (Robert Van der Wall) used proprietary parts.

Hello,

Yes, I believe it's called the thrust bearing. I have a poll mounted WB. It's the part that the wires attach to and fits in the pole. Do you have a picture of it? How are the bushings and the copper that fits over the top that the generator connects to? Thanks.

Steve
