Holes that are guiding the cables through a change of direction have snap bushings.
Holes that are aligned with a straight run of the cable, particularly ones that are close by another hole that does have a snap bushing, do not have snap bushings.
The reason being that when the cable is taught from pressure on the pedals it should pass through the center of the hole on a straight run portion, and not make contact.
This has been monitored on the prototypes and after accumulating a lot of hrs, There has not been any evidence of wear on the cable or bulkhead.
