Kickdown rod grommet

On my 79 Ford F150, C6 Tranny, where can I find a grommet for my kickdown rod?

I looked in the parts catalog and don't see any listing for just the grommet.
The only items I see are the kick down rod, the retainer clip and a snap ring, nothing listing the grommet.
In the illustrations there's no breakout for the grommet either, just the complete kickdown rod.

Typically the grommet is part of the kickdown rod. Ford does not offer them as a separate part.
I have used steel or bronze bushings to replace broken grommets. Most of the better hardware stores carry a decent selection.
Good luck.

I was afraid of that. I stuck a piece of rubber in there for now. Not sure how long it will last.

I just searched that number, and also cp power train, and came up with nothing. Is there a particular way to search?

Reason I asked for the engine size, there are different pics for: 300 - 302 - 351M/400 - 460.

There is no bushing available by itself, as it's made as part of and only available with the kickdown rod (no bushing available for 300/302/460 rods either).

97409-S8 .. Retaining Clip - 17/32" O.D x 13/64" I.D. x 1/32" thick.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The nylon 'snap-in' bushing on the manual control selector lever on the L/S of the trans case...that the shift rod attaches to, same as the nylon bushing on the selector lever on the steering column are available separately.

EOSZ-7341-B (replaced D5AZ-7341-C - DOAZ-7341-A - C7SZ-7341-D - C3AZ-7341-A) .. Nylon Selector Lever Bushing / Available from Ford ~ MSRP: $4.22 each.

Myriad 1963/96 FoMoCo vehicles.
