My first  67 Sprite needed new trunnion bushings in 1972, so the 
originals lasted 5 years. I failed inspection due to them.
I have bought plenty of new bushings over the years and the rubber ones 
last about 5 years. Same as the originals. In fact I do believe the ones 
I get from a lister are the original brand. Metalestic
Now I do not nor have I ever bought moss rubber so YMMV.
