I had purchased an autogear m22 from George (He manufactures them) and talking with him about the pilot bearing issue. He said the pilot bushing is fine. But! make sure it is not impregnated with steel. And how to tell the difference is if it sticks to a magnet, the bronze one won't. So I checked my replacement one and sure enough it stuck to the magnet and checked my old one and that one was bronze. So I had to do some hunting to find a new one. Hope this helps.
