Minor update on the shift linkage bushings

 I used a large diameter drill bit to deburr the center holes. It didn't take long and isn't difficult. It's not as pretty as doing it on the lathe, but, eh, the burrs are off.

Then I tool a file and broke the edges on the shoulders so I don't slice my fingers up handling the bushings. Those burrs were SHARP!

Now they are ready for install once I do some cleanup on the linkage itself. And I keep forgetting to measure for hardware. heh I'll get that done shortly. There are a few fastener stores near my work that I can try to find something that will work be long enough to work. These are made for an 8mm through bolt.
