The two metal adjuster pieces on the shift linkage that screw up and down and slide thru the shift arms on a 3 speed standard transmission . Would like new if I could find these. I also have a question for those that know. I see where we can buy the rubber bushing for the shift arms on the 65/6 that has the brass bushing but these do not come with the other washer that gets bradded over from the nipple that comes thru the rubber busing to hold it in place. Wondering if it would be better to use the earlier style rubber with nylon bushing and two washers, one on each side or what. Also, wondering why no-one is making the shift arms for the transmission with this part in place.

FORD used to make the shift arm bushings with the brass sleeve AND the (odd size) thin washer to brad it all together with. Then about 12 years ago they ran out, made some more, and never included the washer in any of the later kits. A lot of dealers still sell these (I guess) NOT knowing that all the parts are not there to make it all work correctly.

BUT, for around $40 I'd rather replace the whole arm WITH the new rubber bushings already braded into them CORRECTLY.

Seems like a lot of companies are selling things and they aren't even aware of the fact that they don't work.

I have been unable to find a supplier for the arms for the 65/7. Where have you found these? Uncertain what you call the clevis(?) on the shift linkage but I really need those two pieces as mine are sloppy on the rod and in the bushing for the shift arm. Thinking of making my own.
Thanks, Rich
