As posted by many on the forum, I also found it supremely difficult to re-insert the shift rod into the shifter housing once the new bushing was installed. After hours of unsuccessful trying, including the loud use of every four letter word in my extensive vocabulary, I settled on a modification to the bushing as shown in the attached picture. Then, a slam dunk. I'm assuming my "mod" is not detrimental to performance or reliability.
