Bushing in front donut

As far as I know(though I may be mistaken) there is supposed to be a bushing to center the front donut on the propshaft. However for the V6/turbo version they are no longer aviable. I'm thinking of replacing them with an O-ring or similar. Does anyone know what these look like so I can get the as close to original as possible? I might need more than one O-ring.

The picture here is from the 4 cylinder version.

It's not a rubber O-ring, but a metal cylindrical bushing. Well, presuming it's what I think you're referring to, it is part #3 from the ePer parts list:


The bushing pivots over a spherical bearing that is press-fitted onto the end of the prop shaft. The bush then passes through the donut and into the flywheel. There is a rubber seal, but it doesn't function to centre the donut.

These are photos from my prop shaft.

The cylinder bushing are possibly still available (on backorder with Centerline, US, so maybe enquire).

The seal, you're right, I haven't seen available anywhere.
