The linkage bushings on my husrts shifter on my 69Z are worn out. Does any one know who I can get replacement bushings from? I tried using the steel bushings but they are the wrong size. Does Hurst offer more than one size? My shifter is the original style shifter with round handle. Not the bolt in flat handle. The bushings are some sort of hard rubber material and they seem to be molded in the the shifter. Anyone been through this? Thanks in advance.

Best alternative is to pull the shifter tower and 1/2, 3/4 and reverse levers out of the car, and make the holes in the levers and shifter fit the steel bushings.

The levers and shifter levers are hardened, but careful "porting" with a carbide tool and rotary grinder will get you a lot better setup than any factory or aftermarket fix out there.

Hurst has two kits, just FYI, for both plastic and steel bushings, all fit replacement shifters, will work after porting the holes in the stockers.

Kit comes with 7 bushings and proper "G" clip retainers.

Question for Ignitionman... What are the pros and cons between the nylon and steel bushings? Or is there?
Thanks for your last post!

The only problem with drilling the holes out is that you are modifying what is becoming an increasingly rare part.

You can send the shifter off to Hurst for a rebuild. If the rod bushings are worn, I guarantee the bushings inside the shifter are worn too. Hurst will rebuild it to stock specs, including molding new rubber bushings to the rod arms.
