I made a split bushing out of oilite bronze (SEA841), I Incresed the side surface area ( to increse side load stability ) Turned the O.D for a +.001 slip fit. Bored the I.D to -.0005 under size then took the original locating pin and burnished the bore to the pin. After thousands of miles I still have virtually zero play in the shifter. It's a great product,.. just needs a different bushing material..
Delrin maybe or is that what the stock one is. Im wait on a new one from them.
