I would go get a bushing and test fit, it
if its to sloppy, you may have to replace the shaft
its beet up, i have a real good feeling that a brass bushing will fit over it with no slop, its just a matter of low actual contact area. maybe bring the piece with me to the machine shop and have it turned down and get a different bearing. when i lived in south florida there was a small bearing place in the industrial park that i could walk in and get just about any size bearing for anything, bearings is all they did. i wonder if Im gonna find a place like that up here in central florida?
