That is an item you will have to have someone make for you on a lathe.  They are not reproduced.  Good news is that is a very easy item to make.

I had my machine shop do this, just make sure the bearings are aligned in the bell housing.

Is there a recommended material for the bushings? Delrin perhaps?
