When I rebuilt my tranny, I did the force fluid mod. I am certain I checked the bushing with a yolk prior to walking away from it...years ago. Enter today. I put the tranny in and the drive shaft wont go in. It is hitting the bushing and will not go in. I pulled a spare yolk and hammered it a few times. No go. It was too tight to turn. Are there different size bushings for these? It would seem that if I had mushroomed one side or something, there would have been some sort of lip. I Pulled the seal and it appears to be uniform all the way around.

Also, do I have to pull the housing to pull the bushing?

I am not sure what happened to the tail shaft. I purchased this one from Alan a few years ago so the tranny could be thrown in. I went and got a new bushing yesterday, and made sure it fit the drive shaft. Started installing it, and stopped about half way in. It was too tight to install the yolk. Same PN as the one that was in the car, but it wont work. So I pulled the old one off of the old tranny and used it. No force fluid mod for me I guess. I kinda jumped the gun and did not measure the old one, but this has taken WAY too long, and I have to get this done. Anyone ever encountered this before? Tranny gurus? Anyone?

First and second pix are of the partially installed today bushing. You can srr the line where I was checking for fit, and the yolk did not. Last pic is the one I drove out today. You can see that it had an even "squeeze" on the yolk. My guess is that it was from some factory screw up...but how it worked, I do not know because like I said, it is the same pn cast into it as mine.
