Nylon cutlass bearing inside the nylon shaft log

Jul 27, 2019
Yamaha 33 La Conner
Is anyone here familiar with the nylon cutlass bearing inside the nylon shaft log on the Yamaha 33? I’ve attach photos. The ID of the shaft log where it lives measures 2.0”. The OD of the bearing measures .186; a little wobbly. It’s probably due to wear on the rubber sleeve. Are these things available in the US? I’ve emailed various links to Japan with no response. None of the cutlass bearing suppliers I’ve contacted have ever seen this bearing. Curious to know if other owners are familiar with this issue.
