Abstract:

Angularly spaced sector portions of a bushing element attached by its annular flange to a housing, adjustably positions angularly spaced bearing elements and wedge-shaped spacers for bearing support of a shaft with desired radial and axial clearances maintained by fasteners extending into the housing parallel to the shaft axis from the flanges of the bushing and the bearing elements to accommodate radial adjustment, while fastener studs extending perpendicular to the shaft axis through enlarged holes in all of the elements of the bearing assembly accommodate axial adjustment before attachment of the bearing elements in their adjusted positions to the housing is finalized.
