Yes, though I will have to take it apart to measure it, which I am hoping to avoid without having at least some form of correct bushing to reinstall.
I called Larry Yates at Quigley, though he simply referred me to Customer Service. They looked up the part and said it was a stock Econoline bushing and gave me the part number (F2UZ-5K486-A). I called Ford and they confirmed that this was the part number for the stock bushing. They have some in stock, so I am going to drop by there in the morning and check them out. If they are the proper size, I'll pick up a set, take measurements and then install them. I can then order the proper size poly bushing to install when I am feeling bored. It is possible that the poly bushing set just happened to come with the wrong set of grommet bushings, but we will see.
If the factory bushings are the same size as the existing poly bushings (too small), then I get to start over and try again. I'll post what I determine tomorrow.
