Throttle rod bushing vs thermostat door rod bushings
Posted by: joelsplace ()

I went for my throttle rod bushings and looked up the number for fun and they are thermostat door bushings. Is there any difference between C549 and C648?

They are exactly the same price and they look the same in the catalog but I'm out of the throttle rod bushings so I can't look at them side by side.

I found a package of C549s. They are identical.

There are door bronze bushings that will fit the FC side door hinges. These are from a Chrysler I believe, they are the same size as the plastic ones. I would think that they could be found on the "HELP" board at a flaps. I buy them bulk from another supplier. NO, it is NOT Rock Auto!

I don't know the shaft size, but there is stuff out there if you look around.
