    RAF rubber mast bushing

    I'm looking for a substitute for the RAF rubber mast bushing. The one I have failed, didn't cause any damage, just change the CG way out of adjustment. The factory one appears to be made out of an unusually soft rubber compound. One is on order but I have yet to receive it. I'm told...
