I have a butterfly plate in which a shaft runs through so it can open and close the plate. Occasionally, the shaft cause damage to the housing of the plate. Therefore, a bushing that will be used as a sleeve will be inserted in the butterfly plate. The O.D. of the sleeve has 5 grooves. Structural adhesive will be applied on the O.D. of the sleeve and the sleeve will be inserted into a butterfly plate. A shaft will run through the sleeve. What is the purpose of having those grooves for the adhesive? This will be a slip fit installation.
