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.

Roger Carter is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
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.
