Well. did my diff bushing today - almost. Got stuck. I ran into just about every problem. Had to cut the sleeve out and I can't get Max's grey bushing in. So car is in driveway on ramps with bad weather coming and i can't get it back into garage with diff and drive shaft hanging. I will do a pictorial write up when i am complete detailing my troubles and perservereance.
Question - Best way to get max's bushing in? I do not want to hammer the hell out of it for fear of getting stuck partially inserted and can't remove it.
Option 1 - use a flapper wheel on a drill motor to remove aluminum from the diff bore
option 2 - try to remove material from the bushing - maybe use expanding chuck ona drill press and emory the OD
Option 3 - give it the stink-eye and yell at it
Option 4 - an idea from one of you
Someone tell max the damn things are too big.... Spent 4 hours getting to this point. I figure if i can get the bushing in, should only take about 2 hours to re-bolt diff and drive shaft and fiddle with exhaust pipes..
help ! thanks - I did skin at least 1 knuckle - my first blood spilled in mod hell - i wiped it on the diff.
