Looking for gearshift linkage bushes

#1
I am having a tough time finding the following bush for a series 1 manual:
2 of rubber bush LU 743086, (Rover part number 548035)
(highlighted in yellow in attached pic)
Does anyone have any to spare, able to retrieve off a breaker car or at least know of a suitable replacement?
Thanks for any help.

Hi Roy

It's trouble. RPS has no stock, and that was the most likely source.

I'm thinking it's time to build a mold and make some ourselves. I'd work with you on that, maybe sell a few to pay off the tool.

Yours

When i fixed mine years ago, i just gathered unused bits and pieces of reinforced rubber hoses, and after choosing the right sized one, i managed to create something that worked. After all those years and the hard use, it still works, so i can't complain.
I meant to say that if you spend some time with the gearshift linkage parts and some bits of rubber, it's not too difficult to come up with something just as good (and possibly better!) as the original bushes.
