HEI shaft bushings

I have a bad upper shaft bushing in my delco HEI ditributor, and I cannot find a replacement. Does anyone know where I can order one?

I would take a real close look at the shaft if the bushing is worn out. May consider new dist if you can loose the vintage OEM. Give these guys a call and see if the vette dist bushing is the same as the one you have, they sell the tool as well for remove/install. However you can buy a new HEI for 55 bucks form another vendor skip white:

You could take a look at McMaster Carr for oilite bushings.
Find a hobby machinist to modify them as it's a real simple job

A GM parts counter at a dealership is your best bet as they are the only ones I know that used to carry them, I don't know if they still do.
