Bushing spacers for LT77 remote
Posted by: relative4
Date: March 19, 2017 11:22PM

I'm replacing my LT77, and when swapping the gearshift remote from the old gearbox, I found that the bushings that mount the remote to the gearbox were toast, and that three of the four spacers for them were missing. The one spacer I have is one of the front/upper ones. I can get bushings from Moss, and I can match the upper/front spacer at the hardware store, but can anyone tell me the length of the lower/rear spacer? Or a domestic source would be great too. Thanks!

Todd's recommendation is probably best.

Thanks for the links. Those are for the bushings, which as I said I can get from Moss (or, obviously, a variety of other sources). What I lack are the metal spacers that go inside the bushings. Does anyone have dimensions for those? In particular, the rear/lower ones for the bolts that point inward toward each other, not the front/upper ones for the bolts that point toward the engine. Thanks!

Measured up a pair of each. Got .525" and .530" on the lower shorter ones. Got .850" and .860" on the longer upper ones. Let me know if you need ID and OD.
