40-216 restoration questions
#61
I try not to touch these at all, and when I find the insulation is cracked, if it is not crumbling badly, I just put heatshrinkable tubing over.

Does anyone sell new bushings for the tuner?

They look similar to renovatedradios "t01" part for Hippo radio but may not be as long. It's the closest I can find so may just have to try.

Measure the old one carefully, and compare to Ed's (Renovated Radios) measurements for T01. You can always cut off excess rubber, but you can't easily add more on...

There's one he sells for tuning caps for 37-116 and likes. Could just fit.

On my 116's I've used 2 rubber grommets from the hardware store per bolt/sleeve. One is 7/16" od and fits the hole in the chassis. the other is 5/16" od w/a 3/16 hole for the sleeve to fit thru. Cut the small grommet in half putting one half on top and the other on the bottom of the larger grommet.
