The engine shop is replacing the small end bushings on my stock connecting rods. They called this morning to report the aluminum is giving them issues - getting chewed up by the tooling. They need a new set, but note brass would be much more machinable. Is there a source for brass small end bushings? Usual places aren't showing anything available.

Received Centerline order today. The bushings are just aluminum. The website and whoever I spoke with on the phone last week said they were bronze, today they say they are aluminum. They want to see pictures of the gouging on the aluminum bushings from Spruell Motorsport (which are clearly NOT OEM) and the person I spoke with on the phone at Centerline doesn't understand engines. Back to square one, now I wait for the ones from Latvia.
