Do you have a link or info where to look for the part you have listed? I 'll try to find info, but if I can't could you send the info. Thanks for your reply. Steve

Steve, that is called a take up bearing. You'll get them at any decent bearing supplier. They come in a staggering array of sizes (metric and imperial) and as previously mentioned, are self-aligning due to the spherical bearing insert. Attached pic will show how they are set up.
