Dana 300 Shifter WASHER? _ NEWBIE HERE

Can anybody give me the EXACT dimensions of the washer that sits on top of the shifter bushing to stop the rattle noise at high speeds. It's not the T5, it is the Dana 300 shifter.

I found a replacement rubber bushing but I am missing the washer that tends to squeeze the bushing for a tighter fit. I was told a 5/8" washer would work but that one seems to have a lot of play around the inside dimension. (I.D.). Also, its appears to be huge at 1 3/4" wide (O.D.).

Is that the RIGHT one?

Anybody?

* The images show the washer in question. They are off the internet.

I happen to have that washer in my hand and it is a 1-5/16"OD (1.3125") and 21/32"ID (.65625"). So yes, a 5/8" (.625") washer should be correct.

By the way, that first photo is one that I had taken. You can send me a cash for using it $$$.

Your photo? . . . Nice!
Your $$$ should be in the feeling of knowing you have helped a lot of folks posting that, lol . . . good job!

Hey, thanks for those specs.

I just checked the one they sold me and it's the wrong size, way too big. Go figure!
I knew something didn't seem right yet their package was marked wrong.
I will head out today and exchange it for the right one.

It's funny how such a simple item can be the biggest stumbler.

Thanks again for the reply and of course, the posting of that image!

Yes, in both pics the correct position.

When installing it, it needs to compress, so it helps if you have help pushing the shifter down from the top when re-installing the shifter.

No more rattling shifter.

Second pic is mine.

Thanks for the thread 258... soon to try to put my D300 shifter back together but didn't know how it was supposed to look. PO did a hack job on the shifter years ago and apparently chunked a bunch of parts.

Great thread. Since I fixed my exhaust leak I now can hear mine rattling ever so lightly. Now I know what to fix when the time comes.

Doesn't the bushing just slide up the shifter ?

Yes the bushing slides up the shifter and is stopped by the washer, the washer is stopped by the shoulder on the shifter.

But when you install the shifter, you will need to push down to get the shifter hole to line up with the rod.

BTW the bushing is actually a shock bushing. The original shock bushings were two piece, one for each side of the shock. If you look up shock bushings and the tc bushing in the parts manual, they are the same part number.

So if you need a bushing and only have the one piece hourglass shaped bushing, cutting it in half will work.

The nut in the second pic is not correct. It needs to have a rounded/bowl shape side that fits into the rounded/bowl shape in the shifter.

In the 31 years we have owned our Jeep... I never knew there was supposed to be anything there. I may have to fabricate something..

That's what the washer prevents. Keeps the rubber bushing from sliding upward and applies the down force that's needed to compress it against the link so it won't rattle.

It's amazing what a little piece of hardware, like a washer, can do to prevent noise and looseness of the shifter handle.
