A friend showed me a nice elegant way to remove these. (I had a very
stubborn bushing on my 5.0L V8). A tap that is just big enough to bite
in to the bushing will pull that out as soon as it bottoms in the
crank. (For the V8 I needed a 1" tap that I found at a swap meet for
$1. Need not be machine shop perfect.) To make it bottom sooner and
without resistance, I put a steel bearing ball in the bore before
inserting the tap. I was surprised how easily it worked. Most
difficult part was to keep the crank from turning.
