The missing bushing is labeled as item 17 in the drawing.

Attached is a photo of the black plastic bushing as installed on 'Desert Rose'

Thank you! Do you know how I can find out the part number?

If it comes down to needing to cut them and throw them away, I'll save you the trouble and take them and save them for the next guy that needs them. I have a set for each car already, but I have some space in the backyard.

I can't believe there's a set of these about to get destroyed when I had to pay money for mine.

This is what it should look like if it stayed put.

Wonderful trip report!  Having driven my 6.9 all over the west in summer I can relate.  It really is a special experience and fun when people take notice.  We're preserving history here.  Hope I'll be able to post something similar when I get my baby back on the road.   Cheers,

On second examination maybe it’s a plastic bushing I need? But what kind? Was reviewing the 30-300 manual page 13 and saw these:

Hi Jed,

Yes, I took it to Superior in Mt Clemens. It looks like they did a nice job, thanks for the recommending them.

And yes, I'm doing the Mac race and the delivery back.

Thanks :) Thought that was dodgy.

I've searched the 30-300 Assembling Shift Lingages document in the OM617 service manual but I can't seem to locate exactly what I'm looking for.

http://handbook.w116.org/Engine/617/30-300.pdf

I adjusted my valves yesterday and when putting the shift linkages back together realized that some sort of push rod (not sure of the actual name) is not staying where it should. I must be missing some sort of attachment clip but I don't remember seeing it during dissasembly. Will someone please help me identify what piece this is so I can order a new one or perhaps teach me a trick that will help it stay put together as it should? The car will not shift properly at all with it in this condition.

Thank you in advance.

I don't think you'll have a problem with the new rubber supports.  Its supposed to fit snug otherwise it would bounce all over the place.  Curious, did you have the guys in Mt Clemens recore it?

Are you doing the Port Huron to Mackinaw?!!
