If you have to have original rubber then I have a NOS early 70's era traction bar set where they are included . I would not break up the package. PM me if interested.

Would let you know.

Thanks

A friend has a 66 with overrides. Where do you find the original style rubber bushings?

One of his rubber bushings has a steel insert. Did the originals have steel inserts?

NPD has a hard rubber style bushing, but it turns out that its Poly bushings.

Is the bushings in the over rides and under rides the same?

Did original bushings have any number/letters or part#?

Did early style straight over rides and later kinked over rides use the same bushings?

Yes, has searched the www to no avail!
No steel inserts . The harder more durable Poly bushings are a later evolution of the original Traction Master rubber bushing . If you use the Poly bushings and want them to look more historical correct then you can tone down the shiny appearance that the Poly bushings have by using steel wool or sandpaper to dull the appearance. The original TM bushings that I have taken out did not have any markings that I remember seeing.

Thanks. The owner is not that fond of Poly bushings. Looking for rubber with factory apperance first!

I wasn't advocating for but explaining how you can make the best of a situation where the poly is the most available. The regular rubber ones have not been readily available for more then several years. FYI I don't think that there is a squeaking problem with use in the traction bars like there sometimes is when poly bushings are used in front suspension components. Best of luck in your search .

Thanks. If anyone can point me in a direction of original style rubber bushings.......😉

It now looks more so like the the "Y" has been added then not . Still hard to tell if the "Y" has been stamped and then scratched over for some reason or just a primitive "Y" scratched into place. At least that is the way I see it.

Maybe a Y stamped over a V?? Looks like outer legs are perfectly straight to me.

Does anyone have a pic of a similar tag from a known genuine Cobra?

I don't find it listed for any thing other then the 427 Cobra. Knowing Ford though there probably is another obscure application that it was sourced from? Nothing in print that I can find though.

Thanks. Would guess that a 427 Cobra did not have a VIN# on the transmisssion?

Did any other car than the 427 Cobra use the HEH-BY trans?
