A few months ago I changed the crank bushing on my T because the crank was wobbly loose and had a hard time staying engaged.

It didn't help, but since I have a starter I worked on other projects for awhile. When I got back to the crank I noticed that the ratchet was pretty much worn out so I replaced it.

Now I realize that I need to press the crank bushing in further.
It was a bear getting it in as far as I did. Now What?

I am thinking about some 1/2 inch threaded rod, big washers, nuts, a shout piece of pipe that fits over the sleeve and some bad words.

Hi Fred,

Yes; threaded rod, washers, pipe as a sleeve, and nuts so that you can pull the bushing flush with the face of the crankcase "snout". That is what I had to do. Good luck with your project. Bill

Thanks Bill,

Is it ok to use bad words?

Fred,

Some bad words are a necessary ingredient in any project. Just ask my sons. If it weren't for the various projects over the years their vocabularies would have never fully developed. :-)
