FEELER: Shifter Bushings

Well I've gotten some interest from another thread over in the technical section about doing a run of shifter bushings. I just made a set up for 642 and they turned out well, so I'm getting a feeler for how much interest there is and whether its going to be worth doing a run of them. They will be made from delrin and the current planned pricing is $35 shipped in the lower 48 states + paypal fee.
Paypal address is [email protected]
Make sure that you note shifter bushings in the title and that your user name for here is included.

First let me specify that these are the bushing in the actual shifter assembly. A full set will be all 6 bushing which are labeled 2, 6, & 11 in the service manual.
EDIT: based on feedback from the test sets, The shoulder of 11 was turned thinner , since there are no sideloads on the bushing and its a pain to test fit due to the C-clip. Also found that out of the several sets that I finally got to measure, the bore variations were just tolerancing range. Final sets will all be shipped with identical 2/6 bushings packaged together and the 11 bushings packaged seperate.


I'll be turning them so that they are slightly thick on the shoulder that way that they can be sanded for a tight yet bind free feel. Based of the rough end of a lot of the factory components in mine I'm not expecting them to fit every car identically so this seems like the best way to do it without introducing slop to cover the factory tolerences. This is how I did mine and after a couple test fits and sanding on the length, it had no slop or bind. Feedback is welcome on this as its no more work for me to build in clearance for those who don't want to do the fitting process and aren't concerned about some potentially minor (~.005") slop.

Since I'm new I figure I should probably give a slight background on myself as well. I'm a technician in the prototype department at a R&D build. I do everything from CNC and manual machining to final inspection there. We primarily make prototype bearings and tooling for pretty much any any market you can think of, so these are well within my comfort level of making.

It's awesome to have people like you around to step up and make things happen that are out of the reach of most avg people, thanks. I dream of having a cnc machine then wonder if I'd ever figure out how to use it.... Count me in for a set, if possible a set that will fit without any sanding I can see me sanding it uneven or something crazy with my luck. Pm me your pay pal info whenever they are ready.

Price is in the top post. $35 shipped.
Not sure on the GGSX compatibility. I think the bushings are the same, just different throw, but not positive. Can anyone chime in on this one?
The actual disassembly of the shifter to change them isn't bad at all. You will need a set of retainer ring pullers to get the c-clip off to get to set 11 though. Also make sure that you get the centering spring reinstalled correctly. The bigger pain is pulling the center councel.

Don't have drawings near, but bushings 2 & 11 are .508" bores, .611" OD, .045" thick flange with a .800" OD and bushing 6 is .513" bore, .611" OD .045" thick flange w/ a .875" OD I do believe. Bore and OD should be the only real critical dimensions. If they're not the same, but close, let me know and I can make a modified set for you.

Excellent I just measured the main ones and they are dead on so Ill send paypal here shortly. One question that I did come up with after looking at the stock ones is that the stock ones have two grooves in them, I'm assuming to act as a reservoir for grease, do yours have these? Do you know what Im talking about? Thanks again!

Also guys I called local stealership for the number 2 bushings as I had one crap out on me and they wanted $19.00/per lol So that just goes to show how great of a deal this is!

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

These ones do not have the two grooves in them like the stock ones do. Reason being is that delrin is self lubricating and so no real need. I personally didn't even grease mine, though that'll be up to each person. I always ran my delrin paintball bolts dry and they saw a lot more movement than these, and they held up great.

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

These are a direct fit for the GSX everyone! I installed them today and all I can say is if your missing a bushing or all your bushings do not hesitate to put a set of these in, amazing! I was missing all my bushings and had never had a Galant before so I figured all the slop could have been typical, all I can say is I don't know how I was shifting before without the bushings, it was damn good driving, the car basically shifts itself now!

The fit was pretty darn good, however since I was missing bushings some rust/grime had accumulated on the posts where the bushings go so those had to be cleaned off first before the bushings would fit. Also I was unable to get the washer to fit on top of the number 11 bushing there just wasn't enough room to fit the c-clip if I left the washer in place so I just did away with it.

I had a set of shifter plate bushings laying around and tried to install them at the same time however I ran into a problem with the number 11 bushing/arm hitting the plate bushing so I did not install them. Would anyone like to buy these, not trying to hijack the thread but 20 bucks shipped and it would be a perfect time to install them while you got your shifter apart.

Thanks again Blue!

If I can put in my .02 this is a great investment. I made a set for my buddy's 1g and it took out essentially all his play. He has bearings for the bushings on the transmission side of the cables so the only play he has now is in the cables themselves. I'd say it went from a quarter inch of side to side play to none at all in fifth gear. At 35 bucks... worth it!

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

Also, there was a change from the original intended 2/11 same, 6 larger bore and shoulder setup. All sets (with the exception of the two test sets) were shipped as 2/6 same, 11 seperate.
Well once I got to measure a few, and found the bore variation was factory tolerancing so all bores were made the same. Also found on the 1g shifter, that it had the taller shoulders on the 2 bushing like the 6 bushing, unlike my VR4 one. The 1g unit which was off a car with ~60k more miles had much more consistent wear on those bushing faces, due to the larger surface contact. That is the reason that the 2 and 6 are now the same.
11 was changed to have a thinner shoulder due to GalantGSXs issue with not being able to get the washer back on. There are no side loads on the 11 bushing, so no need for a tight side fit as it doesn't effect slop/feel.
I Edit and noted it in the first main post as well.

Also, there was a change from the original intended 2/11 same, 6 larger bore and shoulder setup. All sets (with the exception of the two test sets) were shipped as 2/6 same, 11 seperate.
Well once I got to measure a few, and found the bore variation was factory tolerancing so all bores were made the same.

I don't know what all of that means, but thanks for shipping them out and Ill post feedback on how they fit. Ive been driving without 1 whole bushing for over a month now so any improvement will be welcomed.

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

Yeah, I figured that not everyone actually read the whole first post, 2,6, and 11 are the reference numbers for the bushings on the drawing of the shifter in the service manual. There is a copy of it attached in the first post for anyone who needs it for reference.

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

Guys, Im really sorry about not getting these bushings installed in any timely manner and not getting on with feedback. I just today finally got the rear axle swapped that I broke like 2 weeks ago so the car can drive (and race/break again tomorrow night )

Next week I'll try and get it done and let you all know how the install went.

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

Just to let people know, I installed mine on Saturday and they fit beautifully.

I didn't even realize how bad my oem bushings were until I pulled them out..they were all either split or had a section of the bushing completely missing

very well worth the money

The split is standard for the factory ones actually, unless yours were in multiple pieces.

Have not made more yet. Been spending all of the last several weekends trying to figure out whats wrong with my galant (no hot start, hard cold start if it starts at all which seems hit or miss).

Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

So these shifter bushings take play out of the shifter? How much play is normal?

(buff guys = good time but my dream is to fondle 1051)
01/17/10 10:49 AM
Re: FEELER: Shifter Bushings

There is less than 1/2 an inch of play due to the cables. If you have more than that, your bushings are probably worn. Its easy to check if you have the stock shift boot. Just unscrew the shift knob (its tough at first but just remember: lefty loosey) and then reach in to the center console through the armrest hole and pop the boot off the four nipples that keep it secured.

I highly recommend these bushings - they're cheap and blue is a good guy.

My daily driver died at the beginning of last week so I'm honestly not sure. It takes priority as I can't very well drive to the shop without a car. I just finished the timing belt job on my galant (in 28 deg weather) in an attempt to get it up and running so I have something to drive, but still sorting through the never ending start issues that its giving me.
