Consider it a sinter bronze bush. If it is not no harm will be done.
Immerse the bush in a cup of oil and put bearing in cup in the oven at 
130 degrees C for about an hour. Then let it cool down completely before 
you take out the bush. During heating up air will be expelled from the 
bronze bush, during cooling down oil will be drawn in.
