Bonnet bushing different sizes?

I noticed that my bonnet bushing was broken so I replaced it with a spare I have on hand. I hear a nasty vibration coming from my hood and to deduced it was a loose bonnet bushing as it is wiggling in the bulkhead bushing holder. I checked its size and the diameter is smaller than the broken one it replaced and smaller than the opposite side. Are there multiple sizes/diameters of these bushes? I ordered #346849. All my spares are very loose in my 1991 110...

Replaced my bonnet bushings today (previous owner rigged up some tubing on one side to replace the bushing). The replacements from Rovers North fit in the hinges perfectly, however, the hood wouldn’t fit in the bushing slot. Not sure if it was the repaint that made it too thick, but a little filing inside the bushings and it fit perfectly. Hood definitely operates more smoothly now.
