I had the same problem with one of mine. The thin bushing was cracked. If you can make a washer the same thickness and diameter that should work. That's what I did. They don't seem to be available. The full kits have plastic bushings but they don't have one that fits the '59-'60 valves. It's not that critical as long as it fits snugly in the bore and doesn't bind.
