I am replacing the worn transmission bushing in my 85 Spider. I purchased the older stiffer style. There's many posts re: proper orientation for the 115 style (picture #1) but I can't find anything on the old style (see picture #2). I did find a semi but not very helpful picture in a TZ spare parts catalog (pic #3) that fuzzily shows the smaller of the 2 openings possibly at the top? Does anyone have any guidance? Many thanks for all the amazing help in here!

115 Style orientation:

You want the center steel bushing below the centerline of the large bushing so that when the weight is on it, it sags the center bushing mor or less into the center.

Hmmm. Not opposite of either picture.

Early bushing, like TZ has larger hole in rubber on bottom. Later bushing has larger hole in rubber on top. In both case, steel bushing for cross bolt starts out being more toward the bottom of the trans, but the weight of the trans more or less shifts the bolt-bushing up to the center of the rubber.
