46 1/2 ton. Just knocked these parts out of the transmission end of my torque tube. Not what I expected or have seen. The Oakie bushings I have seen are 1 piece. Is this an earlier design? I’m 95% sure I have them oriented correctly trans to rear. right to left would be trans to rear. Not sure if the left (rear) section is facing the right way. I knocked it apart myself and the pieces flew. I believe the copper shim was in there as well. Was expecting 1 piece not 3. Appreciate any help. Happy New Year.

Those are the original bushings and seal that the factory installed. The oakie bushing is and aftermarket replacement of the two bushing factory setup with a combination assembly.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Unlike the song, they came from National Machine Works in Oklahoma City.

Here is a little (actually a lot) of information about the Okie Bushing. [oldchevytrucks.com]. (Thank You, Jim Carter)

It is (was ?) indeed originally made in Oklahoma.

Most likely they are made elsewhere now?

Until I saw the picture, I assumed it had an oakum seal and hence the nickname.

Original is two bushings and one seal. Original bushings held in place by a dowel.

"I’m 95% sure I have them oriented correctly trans to rear. right to left would be trans to rear."
See attached picture

"I believe the copper shim was in there as well."
The copper is part of a bushing.
