    I have a feeling I should probably buy the bushing removal/insertion tool. Since I'm going to the O-320 on my -12, I will need -18 horizontals/elevators. I was planning on new parts because they get beat up with rock dings, oblong mounting holes, etc. I'm not sure how much play is on my rudder. If I don't get this piece of specialized equipment, I'm probably going to need it after I realize my rudder bushings need to be replaced.

    Steve,

    I would like to get one of those bushing pullers / pushers from you -- just tell me when to send money your way -- in fact, let me know when you have it and I'll drive up to get it.

    I need to take some more pix of fuel line routings, etc.

    I am making up a good set of instruction to include with the tool as well. I have replaced a bunch of these bushings and learned a little about the few stubborn ones. Wish I had a source for a nice rosewood box.

    I think the guy who commented on the "marketing opportunity here" in the original posting on elevator bushings ought to get a discount. Jim

    Gary Drean told me to get some of these made up several years ago and I never got around to it. I think Jr. wanted one as well. So much for me being punctual.

    Serious question. How many private pilot Cub owners have ever changed elevator or rudder bushings?

    Changed them on every cub that was being worked on while I was part of the project. Seems like most people don't know you can change them or never oil them.

    The bushings are oilite but there is never enough speed/force to force the oil out.

    Will do. Saw the first few come out of the screw machine yesterday. Way cool. Had to make a slight change and hope to get them through it today and then get the wrench flats cut. Hope to have them all made by the end of the week. Thanks.

    First orders went out today and being they are shipping USPS Priority mail you should see them in the next few days. I ended up making extra if anyone else is interested. If you are in the Anchorage area Stoddards will be carrying them as well. Thanks.

    For prosperity sake here are the instructions for the tool in case anyone loses them. Also have quite a few tools left if anyone is still wanting one. Thanks.

    This is for the experimental ones and anybody else that is so inclined,

    Drill a small hole centered through the side of the bushing and holder (#40?)
    Them use a grease needle to lube the bushing (light grease like #1 or lighter)

    Thoughts?

    Any chance any of these tools are still for sale? The web link was dead.
