Anyone on the G have a set of intake and exhaust manifolds in good condition for an MB that they would be willing to part with? That will be the last piece I need to get this going. Haven't heard great things about the repro items that are on the market. Any experience with the repro parts?

Bought some replacement countershaft bushings and a new shaft for the T84. Bushings are too loose in the countershaft bore and too tight on the actual shaft. Some photos of the old and new along with the spacer.

Just ordered another set of bronze floating bushings from another source along with a shaft that has flats machined into it for improved oiling. My old bushings were press fit in the shaft with a spacer, so not sure how these will fit. If they don't work I'm going to source a machine shop to custom make a set. I will post the results of the bushings once they arrive.

The countershaft assembly does have a very slight reduction in bore diameter towards the center as the replacement bushings would fall in and then stop once the hit the narrower section. Not visible in the pic, but it is included for the markings on the gear.
