Working on my transmission I need to remove some bushings.
I have seen the Bushing Driver kits,
But there are a few bushings like in the pump where you wouldn't be able to put in the driver tool and force it out.

Any Ideas on tools that would pull the buchings out without breaking the bank.

They make removal tools But You would need a set of them. One way that I have removed blind bushings is to tap the bushing and then use a bolt to pull it out. A tap and dye set is all that is needed in this case. Another choice is if the case is strong metal is to fill the cavity of bushing with grease and then insert a shaft the same bore as bushing and hit the shaft this is going to cause the bushing to be pushed out by the pressure of the grease.

A screwdriver works good. I use old metal chisels and grind them accordingly.
The bushings have a split in them.
You cut it out and there is no harm to the drum or pump.

They make a chisel called a "Cape Chisel" Snappy tool # is pr5 (I think). This chisel is small and curved to cut the bushing while sliding down the housing without scoring. I keep six in my box because snappy takes a bit of time to order them in, not too many people know of or use them. Transman
