Rod Shifter Bushings

 [VM-RSBUSH]
 $20.00 

Description

Rod Shifter Bushings

Rod shifters came stock on late 91 through 95 5-speed SHOs.  Many 89-91 cars have also been converted to a rod shifter, so even early cars may have a rod shifter.  One wear item on a rod shifter is the rod shifter bushing.  Rod shifter bushings are the two small urethane bushings that help mount the fixed rod of the rod shifter.  Over time they will crack, soften, tear, or otherwise break down.  Oil leakage accelerates this damage, so many cars now have bad rod shifter bushings, which causes the rod shifter to become loose and difficult to shift. 

New Ford rod shifter bushings are not available, but we have found an aftermarket product that fits nearly perfectly and gets the job done.  Our rod shifter bushings are made out of hard urethane, so they are rigid, yet they isolate vibrations through the shifter.  Replacement is quick and easy, as the replacement bushings come in two pieces just like the factory bushings.

Tech Notes

To replace the rod shifter bushings:  unbolt the large fixed rod from the transmission, pull the metal inner busing out of the center of the rod shifter bushing, pull the two halves of the rubber bushing apart, reassemble in reverse order.

 

Applications

1989-1995 Taurus SHO with 5 speed MTX transmission using a rod shifter

Seems like a good product. I put it in and while my old bushings seemed ok when they came out, I could tell these were a tighter fit and were of superior quality. My shifting is a bit tighter, but I think most of my play is in the clevis, so I'll be buying that next. A tip on installation: I've found that pulling the first bushing out with some pb blaster and elbow grease, followed by jiggling out the inner metal shaft is the way to go. For assembly heat the bushings with some hot water and use the old bushing and a hammer to set in the one that's the most toward the tranny...

Tight fit, they work great, really tightened up the side to side movement of the shifter.

These bushings were easy to install and made a dramatic improvement in shift feel. What once felt like rubber bands moving the gears now feels like well oiled ball-bearings! And best of all there inexpensive, I saw similar ones on ebay go for $45! Best $15 dollars ever...

A must-have for an MTX SHO. Very inexpensive upgrade. You will feel the difference.
