As for the extension housing bush, these were a problem in EB XR8s Pursuit cars. At speeds that most people don't travel at (180+) the bush would work it's way loose and damage the oil seal. Oil would then leak out onto the exhaust putting on a smoke show behind the car. The fix was to fit a new extension housing assembly. Mind you, these were 4 speed autos.....
But, in regards to your car, I have seen an EA 3 speed with no bush left at all, the tailshaft yoke was literally running in the aluminium housing. No symtoms other than an oil leak overnight, which was continuously toppped up.
And not even a hint of sarcasm.... (oops)
