    Nice tools Fish...nothing like a custom made tool to get the job done...
    Over the years I have invented more than a few tools ..out of necessity or frustration...
    Maybe when it slows a bit ....I will share a few of them with you guys...

    Got them out. The only way to do this was to mill them out. It was not easy, but I got it done. The Rod end removal was a challenge also. The eye bushing was worn so a replacement was needed. When I went to remove it it snapped off leaving a 1 inch stub of threaded shaft sticking out of the pusharm. I had to weld a nut on the snapped stub, heat the pusharm cherry red and even then it was real tough to get out. In the end I saved $150.00 but wouldn't want to do it again.
