Tiller Connector Bushings, Older Models

Having trouble sourcing the bushings for the tiller connector assembly for my 1996 Tobago.

The bushing separates the bolt from the tiller from the extruded aluminum piping used as the tiller connector, filling the gap and attempting to decrease the growth of the hole.

I have replaced the worn bushings with both whittled wood and whittled plastic hose, and neither is satisfactory to me.

If it exists in the world, it can likely be found at McMaster-Carr...

...or you can buy, from McMaster, uhmw or delrin or whatever plastic stock and fab your own
