wrist pin bushings need to be sized after install and should have a slight drag, no tight spots. there are many ways that rods and pistons can be fitted depending upon application so if you are going stock then the fsm and if not according to the mfg of the setup.
if using std bushings, they press into the rod, do not ream the rod.

The wrist pin should slide in the bushing but the bushing should not slide in the rod.

If the bushing slides in the rod you need oversize bushings. they make them in +.001-+.002 commonly but there are also larger over sized.

perfect - exactly what i needed.
Was confused because the rear bushing slid in and out. no play though. The front bushing i had to push out

I don't think this is smart as the clover compound will imbed in the bushing and eat at the pin.
