 +**Homemade bushing remover**: \\
 +The puller is made from 1" ID black pipe and 1/​2"​-13 threaded rod. You tap the flex head-puller head through the cam bearing. \\
 +The little nub puller with a collar that you knock into the bearing is made from 3/4" rod. Then screw the rod into the head to tighten the jaws. \\
 +Then place the collar over the rod and nut to start the pulling. \\
 +4 grooves were cut into the end for flex / compression to push through the bearing. \\
 +Then it was center drilled 7/16" and tapped 1/​2"​-13 and the slots were cut with a 3/16" end mill. \\
 +The threaded rod causes outward pressure on the jaws of the head when pulled. \\
 +====== Bushing Installation ======
 +These are typically knocked in with a commercially available long rod and a hammer. \\
 +Below are a couple homemade tools for installing the bushings. A knocking rod and a compression plate. \\
 +The knocker rod is made from 1" aluminum bar stock with a .030" shoulder to recess into the bearing, .030" into the case. ((fergerburger of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=1349714)) \\
 +The compression plate is made from a scrap steel plate. The bolts screw in to push the bushings in place. See the [[techtalk:​ref:​tools107#​reverse_engineered_cam_bushing_installer|build pics]] below by Hippysmack. \\
