Question NV3550 Info Needed

Bought a NV3550 used and the shifter had been removed. It looks like the shifter pivots on two pins coming out horizontal from the ball. These look like they rode in nylon bushings that sat in slots in the top of the shifter tower.

I have no idea what these bushings looked like. (ie cylinders, balls, etc),

The FSM indicates the shift tower as non serviceable so the bushings aren't available separately

Can any of you either describe them or better yet provide a picture of it?

Then I can turn some out and solve a big problem.

Any info much appreciated!

I was told it's non serviceable too(as far as buying replacement parts go). But yeah, hopefully you'll be able to make some bushings, if you got that skill

I got pics of the tranny rebuild, but no shifter pics. Hopefully xlr8tr can help you. If not, let me know and I'll pull mine out and try to get you some.

Is this what you need?

EDIT: I realize that it's for a AX but if it's the same I know someone that can find it for NV3500 to.

Bushing info

Unfortunaltely I can't tell what the size is from the picture but I suspect that it is the larger bushing that fits on the very bottom end of the AX15 shifter that fits down into the shift rails internal in the trans. The NV3550 uses the same. However, it isn't what I need.

The horizontal pins on the pivot ball are approx 1/4" thick and the slot in the NV3550 shift tower are about 1/2" size.

I found two nylon spacers at the hardware store that somewhat fit but they allow so much slop you can't tell if you are hitting 3rd or 5th.

Thanks for the info.

Are you talking about how the shifter slides down in the the plastic base that gets bolted to the tranny? if so your missing the little square nylon bushing. I lost one of mine and the only way to get a replacement was to buy the whole shifter. Just go buy a cheap cutting board and cut it to fit and drill a hole so it will slide over the pins.

The best thing I did to that trans was replace the shifter with a short shifter from B&M. That will solve all your problems.

Scoot,
Did you make your square plastic bushings totally fill the slots in the tower? In other words, if they are on the pins on the shifter, how far do they extend (approximately) does the plastic extend past the pins.

I suspect they need to totally fill the space to eliminate slop.

Thank you for the information
