I will first accept the dummy of the year award if Fred at "barnfind" has these NOS. Of course I should have checked with him , everybody knows that, but being a dope I did not. The important part of the post is to help people sort out and solve problems. The plastic bushings will certainly do that with a no friction solution and with a compliant material that will help eliminate vibration transmission (at least some) from the brake system. Now we need to find out if Fred has these bushings.
The last point is most important- Without rebuilding/rebushing this part, you do not have properly functioning mechanical brakes. Like in a steering system, it is all or nothing.
