Default cable tool drilling rig

I purchased this rig when I was 23 and starting my business, over the years I have changed it from trailer pull to truck mount and then to a better truck its been a good rig. this is the 3rd time I have had this jack shaft out for repairs, Im having issues with the bailer line eating the bushings had .375 of play. the clutches are twin disk brand and were considered obsolete in the early 60s so all repairs go to a machine shop the problem is both of the shops that I usually use the owners have retired and closed up so I get to do it this time. what kind of bronze bushing material should i use? its 400 rpm max and heavy load the bushing seems short but there is not room to lengthen it is 3.75 od 3" id I was thinking of using sae 660 bronze but would there be something better? trying to post up pictures must need some posts first?

The main problem would be I assume that the shaft is rotating in the clutch bush all the time you are drilling and only stops when you are bailing. The only permanent solution would be a needle roller but that would require hardening of the shaft. and a hardened sleeve fitted in the clutch case. I know we did this to a rig many years ago and it cost a fortune but it was better than hauling the shaft out to replace the bushing.

The High-Load Oil-Embedded Sleeve Bearings might work for you.

that's for the replys my brother and I got it all pulled apart today one clutch dog is missing and it caused some teeth to get heavily worn and chipped I was hoping for just bushings in the bailer clutch but the main line clutch body is pretty shot problem is parts are almost nonexistent you can see in the second picture the missing teeth and broken mounts not sure how to fix this its been built up once and didn't last

I thought a Twin Disc was like a diamond ring, you could always get parts for it. Would a later Twin Disc unit fit?

If you were here on the east coast I would suggest Spencer-Pettus machine tool company. These people know about EVERYTHING with teeth on it and while probably expensive at the repair it would save you the down time and frustration of finding parts that new materials and processing have left behind. These folks used to do a lot of reverse-engineering for my 100 year old carpet looms and were honest to a fault. If anyone here on the east coast needs this kind of work, google them. They don't shy away from the big stuff either, they fixed an antique lift bridge gear up in the northeast somewhere, Maine I think.
