Hmm. I'm thinking you should try and meet up with some local players to get them to show you around a mechbox. Trust me, it will be worth it.

Also check out the videos on

But to answer your question, the bushings go in the holes on the side of the mechbox. They're the things the gear axles turn in. The shims are very small spacers that go on the gear axles to make sure the gears are spaced properly.
