    Here’s what I came up with, I don’t know if I was missing a bushing or not. But the axle bolt should be better. No slip at all. Ace hardware, had to grind it a bit, exact size needed may be available, don’t know. This will work good.

    Looks like that will work just fine.
    Looking at what you came up with looks like one of those bolts that holds a wheel on a push lawnmower.
    My Columbia uses a 3/8 bolt and a bushing on the clutch rod but I don’t know if it is oem or not?

    Not sure if they would have the size your looking for but Lowe’s carries steel bushings in their hardware section in the pull out drawers.

    The great linkage mystery continues. Lol. I’m not done improving their design. Really need a sealed, or greasable roller bearing, that fits inside of casting.

    Here are photos of the old isolator on the end of the clutch rod. Freightliner actually calls the part rod end isolator. That part number is
    TBS TS0274221 000.

    The bushing that goes inside of the isolator is part number
    02 12249 001. The description says spacer 40330.

    This is all for a 1995 Freightliner fld120. 20190814_135254.jpg

    That makes sense, Mines been missing, for a while. Probably when I had used heater hose, for homemade bushing. Lol

    The thing that gets me us that the truck had a clutch job 10,000 miles before i bought it.

    I guess most shops don't want to tie up a bay over a small part.

    But to me, that's just part of doing the job right. Makes me happy to work on my own stuff.
