Will try and made one myself but if you have 1?
Give us a clue? Which bush there's loads! Lol
its the one that looks like a pair of sockets with a threaded bar through the middle. i think is is the only type you can use to get an axle bush out.
Can you show us on RealOEM which bush you meen I'm a little confused?
I've made a tool for the RTAB's, Rosejoints/upper balljoint, and the lower bush on the trailing arm.
Mine isn't as shiny but same idea
1, Is 60mm external and 54mm internal mild steel tube 55mm deep. With a 5mm thick plate welded on one end and a 10mm hole in the center for the M10 threaded bar (largest standard threaded bar you can get through the bush) Large hole in the side was just to see what was happening to the bush not really needed.
2, Is 18mm thick, 10mm hole the centre again. You'll have to measure your new bush externally and make part 2 just slightly smaller. (I've lost my original to measure )
3, Is 48mm external 39mm internal by 25mm deep tube.
This worked well for me but one or two things
Doubt it will be a problem seeing as your changing them! but it will break the old bush pulling it out so can't reuse it.
Yours won't come out quite as easily as the video, assemble parts 1 and 2 tighten the bolts up on the threaded bar nice and tight. Then hit the bolt/bar that's at part 2 with a good hammer blow should get the bush moving. Then tighten bolts and hit again if needed.
Part 3 isn't really needed, I had the bush in the freezer overnight came to put it in using part 3 just gave it a few taps with a hammer............ then a few more and it was in. A suitable socket or careful use of a punch would also work.
What do you use to make that tool vauxfan?
i used 12mm threaded bar, and a got a an engineer at work to use the laith and make the 2 peices out of a solid cylinder piece of brass to my measurements. can't wait to give it a go.
Looks good, need to get myself a lathe!
Does m12 threaded bar fit through the bush then?
