[C38] Pedestal throttle/transmission bushings

If bushings are destroyed, lever should still move easily, so remove the clevis from the internal lever assembly and if lever moves freely, then you have cable problems, if not, there is also a friction bolt pressing on the bushing.  Check that out. 
Is weird that Edson don’t sell the bushing kit only.  I don’t think they need lubrication. Some greases might make the bushing swell up and bind the lever shaft, so if that’s the case, avoid greasing new bushings.

Like an idiot I forgot where I got the replacements so I had to start the search again (found: Edson part number 960-A-125 ). So they basically last about five-six years. Is that  normal or am I missing a maintenance step? No amount of lubricant made a difference when I took the levers apart. It also took a fair amount of convincing to get the shafts out ( https://edsonmarine.com/engine-control-shaft-assembly-for-870st-45-960-a-938 ).
