I'm trying to help out a friend with a '92 HO 'bird. He had someone work on his car and the plastic end on the cable that holds it in the bracket next to the throttle body was broken. The local dealership and parts houses say they cannot get the part.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is this the plastic bushing on the TV cable? If it is, dot not drive the car until it is replaced. The Basic PN on the bushing is 7F330. There are two sizes, one is black and the other natural (nylon).

I am looking for information concerning factory performance/aftermarket speed parts (1958/1960) used on the MEL (Mercury-Edsel-Lincoln) (Also Thunderbird 59/60) Engine Series (383-410-430-462) produced from 1958 thru 1968.

I believe that is the one. He did drive it about 2 miles after he got the car back which is when he discovered it wasn't shifting right. He said you could drive it 30 feet and the tranny would shift all the way up to overdrive.

I would have thought that the dealership would have suggested the bushing. I'll see if that is the fix he needs.

Thanks for your help and input so far.

This is supposed to be a brass replacement for the nylon ones that break with time.
