Nylon I think is to hard.

Here are 55 dimensions I use. The white are made from smooth on

The black. Flexane. I'm trying 94. I used 80 they have been on axle for 5 years.

Max meritt. Kanter for bushings. Or if you want Dwight has a kit.

Flexane is cast polyurethane. The grade is the nominal Shore A hardness. I say nominal because you can't really measure a 94, it would be Shore D scale.

Here is the link to Dwight's website where you can see some of what he offers. https://www.packardparts.org

If you need new solenoids Cole-Hersee replacements can be bought at some parts stores or from ebay vendors. While TL solenoids look like an ordinary starter solenoid, they are NOT. The TL solenoids need a ground which is provided by the control switch to operate. There are two versions available. DIfference is which large terminal gets power so the end cap will be oriented the proper direction and solenoid will fit the bracket and buss bar(s). Depending on how yours are oriented in the bracket pick the one needed.
