Concours people arise! - Proper TC rod bushing orientation

Recommended Posts

Anybody know for sure what the proper orientation of the rubber TC rod bushings is?  Is it inspected at the car shows?  Has anybody ever been dinged for backward bushings?

Relevant thread happening now -

Not sure how reliable it is, but I simply scanned and increased the size of the TC rod bushes image from my parts fiche, albeit for RHD vehicles, but presumably the same for LHD. You can just about see, especially on the bottom bush in the image, that the larger faces are away from the washers, i.e. facing each other.

Concours question:  Lets say we find a car thats been perfectly preserved, like cryogenically frozen or somehow brought from back in time.  Since its essentially factory perfect how well does it score in a concours style car show?

FWIW, here's exactly how the #182 car's bushings were oriented. I put everything back the way it comes off when I store things:

I'll have to check the other car I'm working on. I may have them installed wrong according to this photo.
