Hi all,

Would anyone know somewhere that sells the linkage bushing for the bolt that connects the linkage to the gearbox or what to search for on ebay maybe? Nissan no longer makes them.

Thank you if anyone can help me with this as mine is missing and it makes for a very sloppy gear stick. N14 SR20 manual.

Yep it might be the ebay one. I've emailed the seller to find out if it is the one for the bolt that connects the linkage to the gearbox to be sure.
Thanks heaps for your help and the web link.

Unfortunately that's the bushing for the gear shifter connection to the linkage not the gearbox end.

This is the correct one, for linkage connection to the gearbox end.

Replaced it on the Red Jett three months ago.

More info:

The part you need is above, see numbers: 20 & 21.

I have changed: 20, 21, and 27 bushes. As I have a B&M short shifter also changed the washers between no: 13 & 19.

Cheers…

Thanks for that breakdown picture, it's the bushing for the 22 bolt and what looks like the 27 nut or if that's the bushing, either way that's the part I'm after. Where did you happen to find the number 27 bushing?

Got ya… you need four (x4) of these bushes. They were about $2.50 each.


Nissan part # 34112-J8000


Cheers…

ps: I would recommend that you fit this as well. No's 20 & 21.

Get 'em on eBay… big difference.

Thanks Phil,

The problem is I've rang Nissan and they don't stock that bushing anymore, is that how you obtained yours when you did the replacement or do I quote that Nissan part number to energy suspension and get it through them? That 20 , 21 bushing seems readily available but not the one for the 22 bolt on the linkage. Sorry for being a pain I'm just a bit confused as to who you got your replacements through.

Thanks for all your help

Interesting. I had a quick look on eBay and eBay UK. Did other searches. Result was a big zero.

I purchased the Nissan part # 34112-J8000, my records show:
17/3/2007 102000 Reconditioned gear selector rod with new bushes.

Recently replaced them again:
12/3/2016 134000 Reconditioned gear selector rod with new bushes

When I saw the condition of the original bushes, I was aghast. So in 2007 I purchased 10 of the buggers. At $2.50 each, it was a no brainer.
So now have two remaining as spares. (not for sale) :p

So what to do? Keep searching; wreckers; specialist Nissan parts shops. Look in the USA for Nissan Sentra cars spares.

Good luck… ;)

Phil, since you have 2 spare would you perhaps give me its dimensions if you have some vernier calipers handy, outer and inner circumference and overall length. I'm not having much luck finding these and may have to make something to suit.

PhilSSStevenson
19-08-2016, 04:22 PM
This may be your very lucky day…

When retrieving the bushes to measure for you, I realised that I had four (4) spares.

And considering that I know I will never need this set, as the Red Jett only does 2,000 klicks a year now, you can have 'em.

Congrats…


PM me and we'll talk money and bank transfer stuff…

Cozzm0, it might be well worth your time for other members, as it looks like there are no Nissan part# 34112-J8000 available anymore. So glad I purchased 12 of the units, nine years ago. Amazing how time flies.:confused:

I'm happy to help this dude out with my remaining four units as I will never need them now.

If you want pics and measurements, just holla…

20-08-2016, 12:46 PM
Thanks Phil, i think some accurate dimensions imposed on pictures from some factory original parts might be handy if you find the time.

I'll see what i do as i don't think i've ever changed them myself. I'm a novice on the lathe, but will be good to actually make something useful if they're simple to turn.

PhilSSStevenson
20-08-2016, 01:48 PM
Yeah, you'll be surprised at the condition of the original bushes if you replace them. And to that, I have a hunch my local Nissan dealer has a box full of them.

Get back on Monday. You can do the change too...:cool:

Thanks for your help Phil, and yes I do intend to do a donation as soon as I have a bit to spare. I am merely a povo uni student these days surviving on aus study till some part time work comes around. I had previously donated $50 to the old forum when I was still working before leaving to get my degree but it mustn't show up now on the revitalized version.

Cozzmo I'd say it will be well worth your time if you have access to the equipment to do so. For everyone else out there that is faced with the same problem (since all bushings wear out eventually), it seems the only way to still get new bushes is to purchase the entire shift control rod as it comes with the bush pre-fitted. Part #25 in the breakdown picture posted by Phil. So if that ever becomes unavailable too then it's custom or nothing.

Cozzm0
20-08-2016, 05:20 PM
Once phil gets me some details on the size (i don't have a spare to compare with, and his bushings are brand new) then i'll see what material will cost etc.

Hitmanuncut
20-08-2016, 05:45 PM
It's over $100 for the control rod new to be able to replace a $2 bushing that is no longer available from Nissan, to help you factor in whether it will be worth your time, money etc.

local Nissan dealer has confirmed that it is a discontinued part, no longer manufactured. So true; so sad.

Good Man Hitmanuncut…

I am continuing your streak of good luck, as I will include (for the price already quoted) my spare $50 Energy Suspension Nissan shifter bushing (Pt # 7.1103R) for the No: 20 & 21 area, along with the four bushings (Nissan part# 34112-J8000) to deal with the No: 22 & 27 area. DO NOT forget to lubricate them well with the correct grease.

I have ordered some material, will knock a few up and see how they come out. I think the rings in the base are for retaining the grease that is usually applied to the ends where it touches the face of the metal usually.

Using that part number 34139-30P00 into amayama they're 5.30 each plus shipping which would certainly be less than the stupid ebay postage price, so that's one way around it, they do look very similar.

I had a crack on the lathe today, but it was like 45degC inside the workshop. I got almost 1 done, not hard to turn to shouldn't be hard to make a few. I want to get a set of shifter rods to confirm fitment before i can say they'd fit.

Update on request.

These bushes are as rare as hen's teeth now. But some are out there.

Look to UK Sunny's and USA Sentra's.

It is Nissan part # 34112-J8000

Looks like there are two in New Zealand. You could contact the seller as they did not sell.

Thanks for the info Phil. I've only just done some more chasing and after speaking to a dealer at Jarretts Nissan in SA (who had 1 singular bushing) and he advised me that Nissan did make something really similar.

34139-30P00

That part number is the shifter bushing for a 300ZX and should work. However I just ordered one of the links you listed as I figured it was cheap enough to take a gamble on the whole kit.

15-03-2020, 11:08 AM
His price is just stupid, but the measurements previous in this thread aren't accurate enough to make a bushing. I have a 3D printer now days so if i get some accurate measurements i'd be able to print some bushings pretty easily that will be better than flogged out 20 year old ones for a couple of bucks each maximum.

Cozzm0
15-03-2020, 11:39 AM
Found my 300ZX ones.
Main difference I can see is the step before the lip and it doesn’t have the angled edge but I don’t think that really matters for fitment.

If you can take some accurate caliper measurements of your set i'd gladly compare with these ones (which are still available).

PhilSSStevenson
19-03-2020, 03:48 PM
Hi All. Was thinking about this thread some days ago. As the Red Jett (145,000) does about 1,500 yearly, all will be well for me.

An important thread this has been, for a much sort after part.

Cozzm0
19-03-2020, 03:55 PM
I have pulled a bushing from and N16 setup I have here and the 300ZX bushes didn’t fit. So I’ll have to get an N15 linkage and compare it but I suspect the N15/16 is going to be the same size.

Well, I would not have thought of the change to s2. Yes, the bushings on the Red Jett require a brass metal joiner. Then try to make one out of these, for example:
