Well, after having replaced the “shifter rod” /”change over valve” 3 times at approximately every 20,000 miles, I finally got sick paying $65 each time.

I passed on the CAD file to my local machine shop, and had them make it for me out of HD Delrin (Good for low speed “bearings”, chemically resistant, good thermal properties).
Here are the end results:
