I think what John is saying is to make a bronze bushing to go between the white metal bearing and the case. But only if the bore for the plain bearing on the case is somehow damaged and you can't fit the plain bearings properly or you lost interference fit.
Hopefully this isn't the case. The glue might just have been added as an extra measure to the peg to make sure the plain wouldn't turn. If he can remove the whole mess carefully, the bore in the case for the plain bearing is hopefully still sound.
