I'm bringing up this thread again because I can't find the thread that talked about pulling the top hat bushing and building up the output shaft "olive."
I have found that there is shallow groove that has worn into one side of the top hat bushing. I have a new one and would appreciate advice of removing the old one or, a link to the thread I can't find that talks about the issue. I've Searched but can't find what I'm looking for.
There appears to be uneven wear on the olive and I will mic that to see just how uneven it is. Next question is, what should the olive measure?
One of our pals at Centerline talked about using a Loctite product to take up the "gap." Doesn't seem logical but I would be open to hearing about that if anyone has been down that road. I really don't want to pull the transmission, then the output shaft to have the olive built up and machined if what I have is within livable tolerances. TIA, DB
