Fixed Colorado Eclipse awning motor

I just replaced my motor and gear drive on my Colorado awning on my 2006 Revolution. Ordered off Amazon, was not quite the same on the drive that slips in the roller tube, but does the same job and bolted in with no trouble. Works better than I ever saw, I am very happy with it.
My old gears were slipping when under strain and I was worried about a failure while driving down the road and causing damage. I tore the old unit apart and it needs new bushings to keep the gears tightly meshed (there is no gear tooth damage). I am now looking for some replacement flange bushings (1/2 in X 5/8 and 7/16 X 5/8 ) to replace and repair old unit for a spare.
Old bushings were plastic, 3/8 inch long. Any suggestions where to look ?
