Having looked back at a couple of topics on the subject I have started to refurb my change housing.  The bush for the change rod is absolutely shot, falling out of the housing and sliding down the shaft.  

 

I know the part number is, according to Spider, R-08DU08.  Fine, but not the easiest to find.  I did see this  https://www.aliexpre...2410437926.html Is it correct?  What about the site?

AliExpress are a bit like the Chinese Ebay, I have used them with no problems.

 

I confess I sleeved mine with 15mm copper water pipe, so the dimension do seem in the right area.

Thanks for that Spider.  I have ordered 3, allowing me to make a hash of one!
