While inspecting the high gear assembly on a 1970 TBolt I noticed that the bushing appeared cracked on the outer portion.
I pulled out another from a parts box & found it to be cracked as well.
After researching the problem I discovered that this bushing is of the split variety and that replacements are actually available, if needed.
But a new question arose when I discovered that the two bushings differed greatly in the distance that they extended from the end of the assembly (see photo).
Is there a prescribed amount for this distance or is it set up for each individual transmission? Any insights appreciated.

Phil

if it helps any the one on the right looks correct. its possible the one on the left could have broken off as a groove gets worn there from the seal thats in the plate behind the clutch basket. i replaced a set of bushes in a '65 tears ago but ill be damned if i can remember what the spacing was. I WANT TO SAY (but not sure) that those bushes, and there two, press in til they but up to each other and the result is the correct protrusion. i DO remember they required a light reaming afterwords.

The bush needs to extend enough so that the oil seal in the primary case has something to run on, not critical , just long enough and a wee bit more.
When I replaced these bushes I had to ream them to get a running fit, used an expanding reamer.

Jaycee, Gavin, Thanks for the input, that's just the information I was hoping to find.
Much appreciated!

Interesting, out of the 3 boxes I have the high gear bushes do not touch in the centre. Unless it's seriously worn I wouldn't bother.

I think we're both on the same page Allan.

Thanks

bigt if the gap is big enough to leak a highly viscous gearbox oil then it is goosed

ca, us
The high gear bush sticks out about 0.350" from the gear and no, the two do not meet in the centre.

Roger that info Dave, thanks much.
Neither of the two I have meet up in the center. If need be, I plan to adjust the gap just slightly so that the seal will run on an un-worn surface of the bush.
