The grommet that attaches the tvr cable to the throttle linkage is dry rotted and gone. ford cant get them anymore. any ideas where I can find one or a good way to fab my own. the piece i need sits on top of the linkage at the tb and the tvr cable pushes into it from the bottom

Go to Ford. They still have them. They are metal with a clip, and won't go bad. Inexpensive, too.

You may also find a problem with the grommet at the pivot. This grommet is not available. The only thing you can do about this is switch to a Locar cable or make your own grommet. I made my own with copper. Bet that will never dry rot!

They are nowhere near $40 here. I think mine was about $8.00 before I went all 5 speed.

The lever at the trans has the exact same bushing you just replaced. I would replace it as well. In between there is a pivot that takes it's own unique bushing that is not available.

The replacement TV bushing at the throttle body end is EOAZ-7F330-A and my Ford store has them. No problem getting them that I know of.

and the one at the lever on the trans is the same. I am referring to the pivot in between. It mounts to the Trans with a bolt right behind the bell housing.

Yes, the junkyard is about the only hope with that or do away with that system and use the Mustang style cable and ball socket trans linkage.

Or maybe one of the more enterprising members could produce a small run of bronze bushings suitable for the purpose, as someone had said they did in an earlier post. :)

As I mentioned earlier, I made my own out of copper. I would have to make somthing a little more proper to sell. It looks rough.
