Re: Powerflex bushes
Not bad at all to do really. Easiest way of getting old bush out is:Once you've got the arms off try to "drill" through rubber between inner and outer sleeve. Because rubber doesn't drill as such the drill bit circles around the outside of the rubber and seperates it from the outer sleeve. Remove drill bit and the inner sleeve and rubber just pushes out, Next, after passing hacksaw blade through eye of the arm cut through the outer steel sleeve to release its tension in the arm - the O.E. bush is an interference fit and pressed into the arm. Drift the old steel sleeve out and the powerflex just push in. Re-fit and get the wheel alignment done.
Quadcamboy? Has anyone seen 3 camshafts lying around anywhere?
