Renovating Shifter Controls: Transmission Shifter Bushing

As our shifter was frozen solid, it required use of a hydraulic press, hammer, and punch to dissasemble the shifting mechanisms. In the process, we ended up destroying both the shaft and the bushing.

This bushing 3120-01-191-3232 [3120011913232] (indicated by red arrow) is made of thin nylon. Although after looking at it, we could have replaced it with an oilite or brass bushing, that would require machining of the shifting bracket. We then attempted to source the bushing using the NSN with no luck. However, we were able to located the part (currently available for order) from the manufacturer using the part number 10L18F. Applied Industrial Technologies carries this part available at https://www.applied.com/c-brands/c-thomson-industries/10l18f/Thomson-Nyliner-Bearing/p/101610126.
