[Healeys] clutch fork bushings

Also, there's (should be) a screw into a hole on the top of the shaft.  
It appears to do nothing.  Finally concluded it's so that you can use 
some sort of forked tool--or a longer screw (so you don't gall the 
original) and some vise grips--to extract the shaft as there's no other 
way to get it out.  Apparently, the only reason for the screw is to keep 
the threaded hole from getting gunked-up.

Moss has a kit that includes the shaft, the bushes and pin.  It's 
cheaper to buy the shaft and the bushes separately, but you have to buy 
the kit to get a new pin (how convenient).  IIRC, the hole in the shaft 
is tapered, so not suitable for just using a roll pin.  I ended up 
buying both, out of exasperation, as the bushes in the kit didn't fit as 
well as the individual ones.  The plastic thrust washers are N/A, at 
least from Moss, so don't throw yours away.

Just in case.
