After years of road grime and water they seize in the bore. There have been many a puller made out of all thread, washers and a piece of pipe to press the bushing out of the case.I read many posts from overseas where guys have drilled them out, ground them out, etc. because they couldn't press it out.I only have one recommendation, do not....I repeat...DO NOT try and get it out with a hammer.I broke the case on my 86' that way.If you get it out, you can either polish the bushing and bore smooth, and reinstall with a high temp, synthetic grease.Or you can eliminate the sole aluminum motor mount and install a new rubber bushing into that hole too: https://www.rpmracingca.com/proddetail.asp?prod=M%2FC%3AEngDamper3Randy - RPM

Quote from: racerrad8 on December 10, 2023, 07:37:02 PMExcellent, going to need some more details on the conversion.Did you use a bushing within the brass sleeve?Also, the modifications to the actual frame rails. Did the rear section bolt right up?Nice work.Randy - RPM
