    Try marlin crawler. They have 2 different sizes. I ordered both and used the one that fit (don’t remember exact one).

    When i had the L43 on mine i swapped the bushing, made a big difference. Never actually drove the truck with that tranny tho.

    In your search did you come across one for a w50? My shifter is super sloppy

    So if you go to that shifter bushing marlin crawler link they have two bushings, one for the L43 and another for other transmissions. That will probably fit your w50 shifter (the other one not the L43 one). You don't need the rubber bushings but you do need a shifter seat. MC also has those but I'm not sure which one you need for the w50. The MC site actually has some really nice guides based on your transmission:

    https://www.marlincrawler.com/transmission

    Looks like there are a couple w5x transmissions listed but that should get you going.

    Edit: here is the link for the seat: https://www.marlincrawler.com/transmission/shifter-parts/heavy-duty-seats

    Well that was a bust. I pulled off the shifter to find the PO had replaced the bushing already. Oh well win some, lose some. Now on to the rear axle seal.

    If you’re talking about the seal on the axle shaft(s) you better plan on buying new bearing(s) as well. There’s no way to replace the seal(s) without doing the bearings at the same time.
