    Just was wondering how everyone else does it and what they use? Pics of any tools to remove or install? I do this every week and was just wondering the different ways. You know some say the glass is half full, and some say its half empty. The block has its own bushing that is not removable that is the same id and od with only 1/4 inch space between the two. So you have to knock it out from the inside, but its hard to get to without making your own tool to install and remove. I have made my own tools. Just looking to see others...

    Nice pics. I use a modified cape point chisel. I started using a blind bushing puller, but found the chisel works better for me.

    But it would get into the block and gouge it. Then you have to grind it out so the new bushing would fit right. Or else the chrank wouldnt go back in the new bushing. I have seen that happen at a few of the dealers.

    Joe...I'm gonna have to agree with the. Elder Statesman...
    If you paid sumbuddy to do it fer yoo...you didn't do the work..or get learned up on it..
    Just cause I paid sumbuddy to build my house...doesn't make me a contractor...

    BTW...it dusnt take 200k to change a bushing...just a bushing driver kit...

    Hey slapper you just don't change a bushing and don't think there is no wear on other parts so if you have motor apart it would b very wise to do it right.
