th350 shifter linkage grommet/bushing?

There is supposed to be a bushing in there. If your bushing is gone you can just make one out of rubber or nylon. A grommet or a few nylon drain plug gaskets will work..

rick 427 I've allways called it a GM linkage grommet....the same piece,and set-up, was used in all RWD GM cars and trucks for years.....trans shops will be all too familier with them,as they wore out quite often....a good independent shop can help you,I'm sure....if not,i'll throw 1 in an envelope for ya.

Thanks for the info Rick. Any idea on the name of what that is?
Thanks.

th350 shifter linkage grommet/bushing?

75 Monte Carlo. SBC400. TH350 auto.

What's up everyone? When I bought the Monte, the trans/motor was all out and parts were missing. I'm missing a piece that is causing the shifter to not really get into gear as smooth as it should. When shifting into drive (center console shifter), it's sloppy and sometimes you have to almost wiggle it in.

The problem is that on the shifter arm on the drivers side of the trans, is missing a grommet or some kind of bushing. The one end of the shaft sits loosely in a hole on the other bracket, and you can tell when someone else is shifting and watching it, that it's getting sloppy there. I wish I had a pic right now of what I mean.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? And / or what part I'm looking for? I'll try to get some pics next time at the garage, maybe this weekend. Thanks!
