Hi Jeremy, I just bought some 1"x 12" nylon rod from aircraft spruce and turned them myself but I did see a bearing place SKF or Consolidated Bearings or something like that had some[nylon rod]. Hope that helps [oh the thing you described is the horizontal or vertical stabilizer]

Drag the two bushes out, measure the outside diameter of the prongs on either the fin or tailplane (whatever you are replacing) and the internal diameter of the housing.

 

Then take them to someone with a lathe and get them turned up - it is a very quick and cheap job.

 

I would suggest not using nylon as it has hydroscopic properties, swells and contracts.

 

The stuff I use these days is the same material used to make heavy duty pipes and can also be had in solid tubular rods that is ideal for the purpose.
