Like a plain bearing in that it's one lump, but this is a machined steel sleeve with radial holes etc in it. More costly to produce than a roller big end, that's for sure.
I'm far from being anything like an RE aficionado, but those that are speak highly of this design of RE big end. Unlike true plain bearings this one also only receives a dribble of oil, it seems to last though.

I must admit I never had problems with the big end on my pre-65 Bullet trials iron. However, people do say that it's less robust than rollers. I suspect because rollers will happily put up with a mere trickle of oil whereas the bush is more like a plain bearing so needs a plentiful supply.

This model has (what RE referred to as) a "floating bush" big end and caged roller mains.
Must admit I've never seen it criticised...what's allegedly wrong with it?

However, I have finally solved the problem, I found one key, in the bottom of the scrap brass box. Coming to Ebay soon, set panniers, Diiversion for the use of....

Julieo, you need this site: http://www.wdbsa.nl/index.htm  I'm surprised you haven't found it already. Absolutely everything an M20 owner could want. Check the Technical Section for wheel building information, good dimensioned diagram and details of spoke lengths etc. Check the Forum page for the most knowledgable group of enthusiasts on all WD motorcycle subjects as well!
REgards, Mark
