OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

I was wondering what people do to replace the molded on rubber bushings in the OEM shift levers on a Munice 4spd. If the molded rubber deteriorates do you just remove it and just have metal to metal contact and use grease? Drill out to have Hurst steel bushings pressed in?

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

I used these when I rebuilt mine. No grease. Although it does say that they do not replace the rubber factory bushings, so not sure if you can pull those and use these but thought I'd mention it.

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

Yes they are to big for the OEM hole. So I was wondering if some people drilled and pressed these in or go without or found proper rubber bushing.

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

The oem hole is smaller and the hurst bushing and that rubber bushing is to large. Tried that already which is the reason for this post. The oem holes were smaller and had these rubber bushing molded in.

Just does not have any thing for the OEM components.

Time to drill it out and use the nylon bushings.

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

Don't permanently alter your nice levers-Call Scott at Hurstshiftersonline.com. I think he has the right pieces available to repair these:

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

I can't believe no one has come up with a fix for this yet besides $35 oem style rubber grommets... Such an easy thing for a machinist.

I contacted Scott and he does not have anything for them. The levers and shifting arms were all made by GM. Hurst only supplies the shifter, he said. He has something close by looks but he says they do not fit.

Re: OEM Muncie Shift Lever Bushings

You might try contacting Pete Serio as another source. He may have a solution for you. Think I'd get some other arms before carving on those nice originals.Precision Pontiac Home Page

Thanks. Yes these arms are super and do not need anything but my reverse is bare. I did not show it because it may confuse everyone here, you probable never seen one like it. It is a one year only for a 68 Firebird.

I'll contact precision and see what he says.
