Default First gear bushing installation tool

Found out the hard way not to hand ream this bushing after fitting. Put in another one and set it up in the lathe and bored it true. Had to make a steel ring to hold the gear in the lathe because the 17 tooth gear wont sit in a three jaw chuck evenly.



And this is the rig I used to get the old bushing out and the new one in. A pair of sockets and a 3/8 bolt for extraction, a stepped collar on a 9/16 bolt to instal.



The other collar on the left is the one I used on the same rig to fit new connecting rod small-end bushes aka piston pin bushings
