    Old \'pilot bushing\' removal

    I need to put in my manual transmission pilot bushing but the old bushing in the crashaft won't come out. the grease idea with the socket doesn't work, the grease won't stay in/ don't have socket/ bar right size. can't find a slide hammer with the right attachment, any other ideas?

    HELP!

    Only use it if you cannot get the old pilot bushing out. If there is an Autozone by you, they lend tools out for free. If you lived closer I could lend you the tool to do the job. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I had this same problem a few years back. Used a big ole tap that threaded the inside of the bearing. Then used the same size bolt to "self extract" the bearing from the crank. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    That's what I do, but you dont even need to use a bolt. Just keep turning the tap after it bottoms out in the crankshaft, and the bushing will pop right out.
