There are three plastic bushings that are used in the shift linkage on my 4-speed, left side shift transmission. Here are the specifications for these bushings:

Note: After replacing my plastic bushings with bronze bushings, I found my shift shaft was binding. I left the bronze bushing embedded within the transmission housing and switched back to the plastic bushings. No more binding. Apparently the system needs some slop...or at least mine did.
