Small Block Ford Dist. bushings

Anyone know where to find the shaft bushings for an old points type Ford small block dist.? The local parts houses don't carry them anymore and I haven't been able to find any on the internet either. Everyone wants to sell me a complete rebuilt dist. Are the later model bushings the same?
TIA

It must have some miles, I haven't seen too many with the bushings worn out. I believe that the main body ( as well as the bushings) were the same until the TFI. Unless you want to keep the body part#, you could use any SB body and stick your guts in it. I'll see if I can locate a #...have you checked the Mustang parts houses...that would be a good source.

Thanks 428, I didn't know if they were the same or not. I'm building a motor for my old Model T and wanted it to look '60's vintage. Have several old points dist. from the junk yard that are "junk". Was going to try to put one together with a petronix unit but can't find one that hasn't been worn slap out.
Here's a pic of my Model A with a 428 in it.

Maybe find a local rebulider in your area or have the bushings made?

Don't know of any rebuilders around here, everyone wants to sell me a complete dist. I could turn some out but don't know if the old lathe could hold the tolerance any closer than the worn ones. There have to be some out there somewhere or they couldn't be rebuilding the old distributors.
