    HELP, I don't know what this is called and i'm about to put the engine back into the car and need the bushing to hold the linkage steady. During the rebuild of the engine the guy pulled the bushing out and lost it. This hold the gear linkage for the transmission.

    CAR: 1963 Ford Galaxie Country Sedan Wagon, with a stock 289, Auto transmission.

    Kinda a strange design but that is ford for ya. Here are some photos of the bolt that is missing the bushing and what goes into it. I hope you can all help me.

    These guys have all kinds of obsolete Ford parts, and even if they don't have it, they can give you the Ford part number in order to search for it more easily.

    What keeps the linkage from slipping out of that housing?
    It seems to me that in a worst case scenario, the somehow "lost" bushing could get replaced with either a plastic, bronze or needle bearing insert
