Hi, my name is ***** *****'re having trouble today.I will do my best to assist you in resolving your issue.

The bushing is a press fit and usually we install them with a press.

What you can do is put bushings in freezer overnight to shrink them,,then use a block of wood over bushing and pound in,,,,be careful not to damge bushing,, have the shaft inside the bushing to keep it from getting damaged.

If you have bushing drivers to drive in bushings even better.

Any questions or problems let me know I'm happy to assit.

Thanks

Hi thanks for info, one side of the bush is bevelled is this the side to place into the wheel?

Expert:  spankyjr1 replied 2 years ago.
Do you mean tappered like a rounded edge?

That side would go in first just to get it started.

Thanks
