The old Allis drag disks like that that I see have wood block bushings not bearing. You could make your own wood block or get some poly bars from McMastercar and made your own. They have some especially slippery ones designed to be used as bushings.

Call Gary Agrimson. I think he had some plastic bearings made.

Take another look. There's an Allis drag disk at Grandpa's. I think it's wood blocks with grease zerks. The balpak bearings used by Allis a little later weren't greaseable.

Take a look in the knowledgebase section. There is an article on rebuilding the balpak bearings. It has some pictures and you can see if they match what you have.

Are these drag disks rare? I know of several but I think generally these are getting scrapped by now. Neat old pieces but not very useful anymore.
