Thanks guys.  I saw the 1/2 inch bronze bushings and am geting those for my 
roadwheels.  Thanks for confirming that they are the right ones.  But I also need 
some flanged bearings for the transmission shafts and the drive axle.  I guess I 
will keep looking.  Maybe I can get to the Flea market this weekend.

Have a good one.
