I'm currantly out of stock on the Bushing Replacement Kits. Material has been ordered. Kits will be available again in a week or two.

Thanks

I'm installing my new bushings and have run into a problem-

OD was perfect! Couldn't be better, but I thought the ID looked pretty tight.

Prepared to be patient, I started burnishing. Following directions very closely, I finally was able to pass the pin thru after 90 minutes.

After several more passes in and out from each direction, I cleaned and attempted the dry slip-fit by hand, but it was still too tight.

Repeated step #9, times about 12 now!

The pin passes readily while on drill and with a little grease, but it only passes thru by hand with significant resistance. I'm trying to remain cautious not to over-burnish, but i don't seem to getting anywhere.

I've let everything cool several times (I've actually been working on this over several days- but I'm needing the car back!).

Would I do something terrible if I made a couple passes with some medium rubbing compound? I don't want to go thru intentionally wiggling the pin to open things up .

Any advice?

[QUOTE=NH-SS]Hi,..

Well,.. there are dimensional tolerances on all components. My bushings are +/- .0003 on all dimensions to ensure a propper fitment. If your OEM pin is oversize you would have the problem you are describing. I wouldnt suggest a compound as this will embed into the porouse bearing material and cuase problems in the future. I would repeat the burnish from both sides, when the pin does go through completely your done. When installing the shifter assembly lube the bushing and pin with liquad soap to ease in the assembly.

Keep me posted

Dave


Thanks Dave-
I just made another pass with grease and the pin will pass thru by hand with less resistance.

Does it need to turn in place? It won't do that now, but if it just needs to pass thru, then maybe I'm closer than I thought.

Thank you for the input and rapid response!

I won't forget the soap!

OK- got'er done and it is definitely worth the trouble, just don't think you're gonna cut a corner or "burnish in place" (well I was kind've thinking about it ).

I wouldn't wait for Hurst's fix- a "higher glass content" bushing is available now for free, just call their customer service line. But a heavy duty (metal) piece is 3-4 months out, and I'm sure it will not exceed the very exact machining and fit this fix offers.

While I was blessed(?) with a slightly over-sized pin requiring alot of burnishing (no brag- just fact), the external dimensions of this thing were dead-on leaving zero play and no slop in the movement.

It's also got a really cool "snick-snick" sound as you move from one gear to the next.

Oh yeah- and it's surprisingly inexpensive! Get one while you can!

The burnishing process is a real PITA for sure! Took me about 40 minutes to do both bushings before the pin would go in by hand! It was all worth it though!

The ID is VERY TIGHT. Took me HOURS to burnish it...but the outside is spot on.

The burnish op. is a variable I cannot control. What I have done is made the I.D. undersized enough to be brought into spec. based on what size pin you may have. What is obtained is an individual custom fit based on your pin O.D. This is a case of one size does not fit all. I have feed back of the Burnish operation taking very little time, (a few minutes) to taking a much longer time.
I will modify the next run of bushings to help ease the Burnish Operation. Bushing kits will be available to ship again starting 10-1.

I'm sorry to hear about the problems that several others are having with the burnishing. Like, NH-SS said, it must be variable depending on the OD of the pin itself. I must have got lucky, as my burnishing literally took like 2 minutes and I was done and ready for install.

I think what it means is put the pin in a drill and use a little grease and work the pin in and out until the pin can pass through the bushing as it is a tight fit. Do both bushings this way.

Basically you put the cross pin into a 1/2" drill, then you put the shifter rod with the bushings already in it in a vise. Then you make sure everything is straight and then start "drilling" into the inside of the bushing. When you are done, the cross pin should move freely inside the bushing with a little bit of resistance.
