I've changed out the busings in the steering box cover, it's not too
difficult.  You need a "cape chisel" to remove the old bushing,
basically this chisel is very narrow, and cuts a slot in the old
bushing.  Be carefull not to nick the hole that the bushing sits in. 
Then, just pry the bushing out.  I learned this at the tranny shop,
where we had to remove similar bushings when working on automatic

If your kit does not have the short bushing, you can use a lathe (or a
hacksaw if you're careful) to cut a long bushing to fit the cover.  GM
used to sell these bushings...I have an old box with the part number
somewheere around here!

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
