yellow85cj,

I want to thank you to for the posting of the second picture as well.
It seems only fair to spread the wealth.
Good job and THANKS!

Bought the WASHER at Home Depot and the part # stamped on the washer is "AGB". That's the one you want.

Home Depot part # "AGB" which is stamped directly on the washer itself.

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

The shifter shaft gets slightly thicker toward the top which causes the washer to stop moving upward. This is just around the top of the bushing.
Pressure will need to be applied to squeeze the bushing down to lock the shifter in.
