Today I finished up making a sleeve bushing driver. I had an early pan that had a hand crank stuck in it,and after I heated it got the hand crank out.I found the bushing to be very badly worn/rusty,and unusable. I made this tool from a 9 inch piece of rear axle. It has two sholders,one about 0.030 less than 3/4 and 3/4 long. The other is about 0.030 less than 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches long. I tapped the sleeve forward to jar it loose and then reversed the tool and tapped it inward(toward pan).It fell out and now the pan is ready go to blaster for cleaning.

I've used similar drivers, but sometimes you meet up with something like this.



Then you have to resort to surgery.




Are you using one of these, or stock?

Picked them up at a bearing/bushing store in Wichita when I was in the big city.
