Drive wheel brass bush's upgrade work

On stripping down the feet internals, I noticed that there was some brass 'dust' residue on the bush's. On closer inspection I realised that I had not machine turned the diameters on the ends that make contact with the wheel bearing face and they were rubbing on the outer diameter face.

So in work, I machined both pairs down in size.

I needed to make up to new washers, as was easier than trying to modify them.
