Question Bell crank bushings question

After engine removal yesterday, I noticed the throttle linkage, aka bell crank bushings, are worn and actually completely gone. I had already bought some new ones prior to seeing they needed replacing. They are just a plyable plastic material, and seem to be prone to fail again. Does anyone know of some aftermarket bushings that are available? Preferably of a more heavy duty material? For those like me, who prior to yesterday, didn't know where they are located, here's a couple pics;





The two bushings, left and right, go in the upright brackets and support the connecting rod that passes through them. Without the bushings, the rod flops around when the accelerator is pressed, losing a lot of travel. In other words, NO FULL THROTTLE!!!

I just replaced mine with the factory plastic ones. They'll last another 20 years. Why bother for now with metallic ones.
