Bushing assembly 10 provides easy adjustment and positive locking of mechanical parts. Bushings 11, for instance, provide adjustable locking for cam- follower bearings 12 to mounting block 13, for tracking cam surfaces 13.

Bushing 11 is externally clamped by through screw 14. When the screw is loosened, hex heads 15 of bushings 11 may be rotated to locate bearings 12 to the desired position, since aperture 16 is eccentric in

Bushing 11 is externally clamped by through screw 14. When the screw is loosened, hex heads 15 of bushings 11 may be rotated to locate bearings 12 to the desired position, since aperture 16 is eccentric in bushings 11. When screws 14 are tightened, projection rings 17 bite into block 13 to provide positive locking.

Bushings 11 are made of a relatively hard material, such as hardened or stainless steel. Block 13 is of a softer material, such as aluminum.
