Wind Generator Tower Mount Bushings

I have been searching the last couple of weeks for replacement bushings for my Air Marine wind tower. I tried calling and emailing Southwest Windpower but after a week have received no response.

After many days of searching on the internet I believe I have found the exact replacement for these bushings. They are part number 60166 from Tech Products out of Ohio. Their website is novibes.com.

http://www.novibes.com/documents/fil...20-%202010.pdf

They come in different stiffnesses. I purchased a few different models and believe the 60166-3 are the correct ones. You have to purchase a minimum of 4 sets which provides you with a spare set and they are priced about $12 a set. This price is probably 1/4 of what SW windpower sells them for if you manage to get them to respond to you.

Re: Wind Generator Tower Mount Bushings

FYI,

Another good source for stuff like this is WW Grainger.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

I didn't look for them there. I just wasn't sure if you knew about Grainger.
They're pretty good about having stuff that's hard to find elsewhere.
If there's one in Portland, take the bushings in to them. Alot of electrical motors/condensors for big commercial a/c equipment sit on mounts similar to the picture/web site you posted. If the counter guys there can't help you they may be able to point you in the right direction, some of them are pretty sharp.
