>>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
Then, just pry the bushing out.  I learned this at the tranny
where we had to remove similar bushings when working on automatic
Back when I used to know how to rebuild starters (about 100 years
ago) we'd screw a tap into the bushing in the rear end frame to
force it out. I wonder if that would work on the steering box
