So the thrust bearings on the worm gear in the front end of my 1950 utu have finally falling apart. The bearing race portion of the worm gear badly pitted I am wondering if I can put this in a lathe and machine it down so I could use a regular tapered roller bearing in it. Has anyone done this type of a conversion before or is there another way I should go? Thank you.

I will have to check the parts book to be sure but, I believe they are the same worm gear on all the MMs of that era, just a shorter or longer shaft out the back. That would open up your search to the R and Z series as well for finding a good used one. Bearings should still be available for them from a bearing supplier.
