MERCEDES SHIFT LINK BUSHING

1966 Mercedes Benz 250se

1966 250SEc 111 Recently the lower end of the shift link at the pin on the bell crank at the transmission fell off leaving a bit of rubber. Warmed the new plastic bushing in boiling water and pushed onto the bell crank pin. I have not been able to get the loop end of the rod onto the bushing. Can't come up with a safe way to heat the bushing in place. Originally considered placing the bushing, after heating, into the loop a and then reheating to press on, but thought the hole in the bushing would be too compressed. I will appreciate your good advice and ideas. Thank You. Edla
