Can anyone tell me the Ford part number for the bushes on the kick down rod. Both ends, carb end and gearbox end. Anyone know where I can purchase bushes?

eBay link that mentions kickdown rod for all - so probably pretty generic:

Ford Kickdown Rod Bushing Replacement Kit- ALL Ford kickdown rods

These guys should have them but might be pricey:

---------I think there are also some related clips!

Good luck!

Pegleg, the kick down rod (carb to trans) had bushings that were permanently installed and Ford did not offer the bushings separately. The rods were relatively cheap right up to the time they were discontinued in 1988. I paid close to $6.00 for a 351 4bl rod in the mid 80's. Compared to what I paid, the rods in the link Boss1Ray posted are pricey like he said. But they are stainless steel, will always look good, and have bushings they claim are more durable than the nylon Ford used and have better lubricity. After all, it's only money and I'm sure your budget is now only a word!!!

Pegleg, great find! If the process of the bushing install doesn't work or if you have problems let me know. Anything I have NOS is for my M code with C6. I have a few old ones, one I'm sure was off a 73 H with FMX Mach1 I parted out. It's yours if you need it.

Thank You for the offer. ::thumb:: I will let you know how the install goes. Will probably be around a month down the road
