      Two compositions of conventional aluminium base alloys were selected and equal amounts of tin and lead as a soft phase were incorporated separately. Impeller mixing and chill casting technique were employed for the preparation of the alloys. Mechanical properties of as cast alloys were evaluated at room temperature. Frictional behaviour of the alloys was studied in detail under lubrication while creating different frictional states by imposing 5–60 kg of normal load on the bearing (bush) mating surface. It was found that aluminium tin and leaded aluminium alloys slightly differ in mechanical properties. Frictional states created during sliding against steel shaft (hardness 55–60 Rc) under oil lubrication were not much different. Leaded aluminium alloy bushes show marginally lower friction than the conventional ones.
