    Any tips on getting the 4 castor bushings out of the deck to replace them? My front castors are very wobbly, but I cannot figure out a way to pull the bushings out. Thanks.

    Just pull the casters out and drive the bushings out with a hammer and punch from the opposite end that they are installed in.

    YOu can even chiesel them out if you have too.. they are only bronze so they come out easy.. Just beat them up , but try not to mess up the yoke insides... But the best way is to get something in like a punch or piece of wook and drive them out from the opposite side...... I did that to get the lowers out then the uppers I chieseled out... Probaly took a half hour to get all four out and new 4 in...
