Picked up a few of the sleeves from the machine shop...more coming. Went with a better quality, shoulder (stripper) bolt, nylock nut and washer...
PM me if you have any questions!
(This is for the large, white shifter bushing on the tranny...)







You basically grind off and drill a 1/4" hole where the linkage stub use to be, and bolt this to the linkage instead.



And of course, you have to gut the worn-out, spongy rubber out of the nylon cable end...

These work on the ones at the shifter right? also four to do the complete car, correct?
No, engine side, and it just replaces the one bushing...the big, rubber, sloppy one.
Sorry, I should've been more specific...

darn, are you going to look into the dimensions to make replacements for the plastic ones? All my play is in the side to side bushing at the shifter after I flipped the nylon slider on the shifter (thanks for that write up btw)

After installing the tranny back in the car, it's obvious that installing these bushings will be very tricky without having the tranny out...but not impossible.
Likely a 90 degree die grinder will be needed to drill out where cable nub is...
