    Does anyone have any experience with removing this bushing? There is a seal underneath (I have the new seal) that I would like to replace.

    I have a blind seal puller set, but none of the shafts will fit into the ~1/2″ hole.

    I thought about using a piece of fuel line and a bolt (like we do removing the brass sleeve in the TD Carburetors), but the amount of tension on the bushing is much greater (I think) than in the carb.

    I’m already dousing with PB blaster, and plan to add heat, but if anyone knows the approved solution to removing this bad boy I would love to hear it.

    When I first started in this group someone advised that (Paraphrasing) ‘those lowers are known for leaking, we just deal with it by keeping the correct lube in the lower and changing it regularly’, or something like that. I’m okay with that if that is what I have to do, but since I was able to source the seal, I would like to find a way to replace it. Also, the bushing is a little wallowed out, and I think I found a replacement at Ace Hardware. 1/2 x 3/4 x 1-1/8 brass bushing.

     

    Thanks in advance

    In the past I have used grease to remove brass bushings in crankshaft piolit clutch brass bushings & brass bushings in surgery tables.. Fill the cavity with grease & use a shaft to force the bushing out. I don’t know your app but this might work for you.

    I guess I was the let-er-leak guy.  However, if I were determined to get it out, I suppose I would tap threads in it and use a bolt to pull it out.  Interestingly, the following year the bushing was replaced with a spring assy.  Looks like the spring assy would work in the older ones also.  Gearcase is the same part number.  551080 seal is used in both

    Sometime you can rig up something to pull out a bushing with all thread,
    spacers, and nuts.

    Prepare to be boarded!
