Pilot Bushing Lubricating Wick?

The FSM mentions it and I've seen it mention here, but I don't have one. Anybody have a picture of one? What kind of material was used, foam? Do I really need it?

Thanks

Foam and you need it to lubricate the Oilite bushing.

A small chunk of Felt will work soaked in G.O. , I soak the Oilite type bushing in hot gear oil then put a small amount of Grease in there prior to putting in the Trans

They look like a pool cue tip, but a bit larger in diameter. Get some thick felt and make your own.

I made mine out of felt and also soaked it in oil, etc. Seems to be working fine.

My factory foam piece was just that, small piece of cushion foam soaked in motor oil. Nothing special and you could use a piece of sponge if you wanted.
