Hurst Shifter Fix

I installed the Hurst shifter, after only a few hundred miles on it the side play was rediculous. I called Hurst and they sent out a "new" design bushing. I recieved it and it was the same as originally that came with the shifter. What I did to fix the problem was design and MFG my own. 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..

I think the bushing from Hurst is Teflon or something similar. NH-SS, I wish you sold those bushings you made!!! I'd buy one!!!

If there's enough demand for a replacement bushing out there I guess I could set up to make some more. The only issue I see is not being able to take the MFG production tolerence into account. I made my custom bushing to match my shifters pin O.D. & shifter I.D. Every shifter will have a + or - tolerance difference. But,..I willing to help out. The Hurst shifter is very nice,.. and with a replacement bushing it's pretty much perfect. So,.. how many of you would like these ??

I will definitely take 2 bushings. You could make mine the same dimensions as yours. I have no problem hand fitting them if need be. I used the factory bushing to make one. The ID was good, but had to take a little off OD to fit Hurst shifter. Figuring out how to hold it in the lathe was the hard part. Shifter now has about 1/8" play at handle, but I would rather have something more durable so I never have to worry with it again. Please PM me if you are willing to make some.

I need to fix mine. I would take one. How did you fix it? did you have to take the whole shifter out or can you just pull out the bushings and put the new bushings in?

Interesting. My Hurst was starting to get a little side play but I figured it was a good time to upgrade and ordered and installed an MGW. I would grab a new setup from you but I'm not sure if I am selling the old Hurst yet or not. How much are we talking? I may get a set to throw in with the shifter if I end up selling it.

FYI,..

Update to all that are interrested.

The bushing material has been delivered. I have to take out my shifter tomorrow for dims. and make a B/P. If everything goes to plan I should have some ready in a week or so. I have set up a paypal account to place orders for these. They will not be expensive at all. I will post the order info when the bushings are ready.
PM if you any questions.
