Anyone got a source for the shift rod support bushings for the TT Ruckstell? I'm thinking I'm going to need some new ones. I see the new style supports are different and use a different bushing than my original one which is captured inside the two part stamping.

It's not really a bushing, it's a vibration damper. You might look for a large O ring with about the same dimensions.

It would need to be pretty thick. The bushing is probably 1/4" - 3/8" thick.

Matthew,

Look in McMaster Carr (https://www.mcmaster.com/) for rubber bushings or O rings. Or you can order the rubber stock and cut your own. Or check the local hardware store.
