    Shifter Shaft Bushing

    Has anyone replaced heir shifter shaft bushing? The diagrams I see show only one but I swear it looks like I have two installed. One is installed flush with the outside (shifter arm) edge and the other is flush with the back (engine side) surface.

    Since the inner primary is off I was thinking of going ahead and replacing that as well. I mean what the hell, I'm already doing everything else it seems.

    If I do this I plan on getting the Jims tool for the job. I believe it is number 5518.

    There are 2 bushings, very easy to do, if the cover is off, you don't need the Jims tool

    What did you use to remove the two installed and how did you seat the new ones? It seems to me that for seating the two new ones all you need to do is tap them in from either side of the primary with a rubber mallet until they are flush.
