Torsion bar retainer bushing replacement.

I'm in the process of replacing my retainers and bushings on my 1086. I haven't got them out yet but the one on the right is almost flush and the one on the left is set in further. Service manual does not say anything about the how deep to set them. Any help would be great. It wasn't leaking very bad but I had to pull my PTO. The o-rings looked good, no tares.

Ok I got everything out then the things got worse. I am 3/4 in with my first bushing and I think I destroyed it? I put grease on everything to help it go in. I used the old bushing to install the new on. Is this bushing shot now or can it have a little hammer rash and be fine. This is were it sits and I haven't went any further. This is the tool I was using. Does anybody have a tool that they use that works better?

Better to pull or press those in rather than beat them in.  But I'd say the tool you made didn't do them any favors.  I doubt you can get the shaft in now.  Probably going to have to buy another set.

J Mech....The second tool I made put it it right in maybe not the correct according to the book but its clean. Prefect like a press.  I got my bar in but I tore my quad ring on the left side. Waiting on a new one. I appreciate your info!!

I saw the second one went in better.  Use all thread to pull it in if you ever do another set.
