I need these T case shifter bushings. Source?



The green one was new from Morris 4x4. I used the two new black ones.
All are super dried out and rock hard. I actually blew out some muscles in my chest trying to crush the shifter rods through the bushings before they cracked and broke

Any sources for these?

I scored some from a local trans shop.

For future info Doorman makes a kit 14041 with a variety of bushings. Not sure if they work though. AZ has them in the help aisle.

Quadratec has a rebuild kit for about 14 bucks I ordered a week ago. Haven't gotten to my dad's house to open it and see what is in there, but I think there are bushings in the pic. In my case, the bushings for the shaft the z linkage pivots on have gone bad forcing the pivot sideways which limited the throw. So in short, I can't get into 4x4 low, but everything else is ok. I noted what looked like THOSE bushings among other stuff in the kit so I ordered it.

That kit is the one I bought from Morris 4x4 when Tim CJ7 suggested it. The kit was great EXCEPT for those bushings. They are diamond hard. I tore muscles in my chest trying to press the linkage in with channel locks. Had to get some fresh ones. My friends suggested boiling them and acting fast to get it together.

Nothing like hot parts and hot water and debris falling on your face while you install.

Did you contact Morris about the bad bushings they sent?

I keep some spares of the black ones. I can still get then at the dealer for about $3 Not sure if the price went up in the last year. The one in the shift plate on the transfer case has failed on both my YJ and TJ at the worst possible time.
