Well, I've taken my TB completely apart. Not much of a trick really.

BTW, I should have mentioned before that I have the Falcon All Terrain unit.

FWIW, Roadmaster makes three different All Terrain TB's.

Anyhow I've seen nothing I would describe as a "bushing". I've got some communication in with RM to see if they can advise what I should check for and what might possibly need replacing after three years of use.

My unit WAS filthy inside; a good bit of road "grit" mixed in with the grease. So at the very least it will be the cleanest it has been since new.

I'll attach some pics of what I've done so far in another message.

Boowho??

Picture mentioned in previous message.

You guys that have had RM "checkups"..... Any of this look familiar to you??

These pieces comprise all the pieces of the round bar that compresses/extends when hooking up. What's not in the pics are the 1.5 or 1.75 inch square arms that these parts fit into.

Boo Hoo....

They also replaced the ends of the rods that extend on mine - the pieces u place in the brackets on the toad and then stick the big steel pin through... Said that they weren't turning free enough so they replaced them... New ones now swivel like they did when new...

Yeah, NOTHING lasts forever. I'm thinking right now that just replacing the parts that are in the kit will fix me up for several more years. Those two largest bushings seem to be the key to the whole "overhaul".

I had accidentally run mine for almost two years without the "dirt plugs" inserted. Had a lot of grit in the mechanisms, but doesn't appear to have caused any excess wear.

I'll bet having to pay for those two extra pieces you got would have been pretty pricey.

Now I just gotta figure out how to get those larger bushings out; probably with a properly sized "drift" and a rubber mallet.
