I have been driving the 914 this week to work , perfect weather and better gas mileage than truck, anyway sudden loss of all gears but 2&3, had just left neighborhood so put car back in garage and last night I found that the shifter coupling bushing was completely gone, all the parts still inside the dirt boot cover, and of course this is a bushing I overlooked last time the motor and trans were out of the car!
It may be the original one . At first I thought I had a cone screw back out but on further inspection found this to be the culprit.

So I see that there are 3-4 variations of these from bronze to stock to poly.

I am wondering if it’s worth spending the extra $25 for the brass ones? Seems there are not any available that I can get over night to get car back on road before next weekend which is a bummer. So any money have suggestion are appreciate, also do we use any lube on installation.


This brass one looks pretty good how do the work?
