Bronze bushing aside, I've run lots of stock rods that were honed out to float the wrist pin, no bronze bushing. It might be prudent to drill an oil hole or two through the pin boss so as to allow lubrication but I suppose this feature could be application specific.  When running floated rods steel-on-steel, a thou per inch of pin diameter is a good rule of thumb (ie, for 1.040" pin hone the pin boss for ~0.0010"-0.0012").

Street use and light hot rod'ing ok steel on steel?    I'd still like to do a set of rods with bronze have a reamer number? it would have to be piloted I would think.
