Just looked at my build thread (cub 149 Resto mod), see post number 30, there is a pic of the bushing (including the bag it came in with part number) from kohler to repair a loose throttle shaft.
Thanks Jeff! Went out and wiggled the shaft, WAY too much slop in it than i like. Thanks for the help with the part number!
