Fairly sure someone on here did a DIY shifter bushing fix for the EA82 5-speed trans using hardware store parts.

Didn't see it in the USRM, but it should've been there. Was pretty good fix.

Been roughly 1-1/2 to 2 years, I think

I was able to find some plastic bushings close to the same od as the shifter, I had to buy a metric drill bit to ream out the id just a little .. 1/2 inch od was very close , needed to sand it just a little and a 3/8 drill is is real close to the id . then I used a hacksaw to cut the bushing to 1 and 1/4 inch in length.
