Has anyone installed a set of these? I bought some new ones and sure would like some advice on how to install them, the old ones fell out. It doesn't seem like there is anything that holds them in other than pressure, is that enough??? Thanks guys.

if you are referring to the bushing pressed into the front axle... then, yes, it is a press fit... I've done 2 of my front axles so far... and will continue as time goes on.

have you tried to get the old ones out??? 

I would not recommend a screwdriver and hammer... tried it... not much luck there.

I used an impact gun with a long rod...

push each one out from the opposite side... I needed a hydraulic press to get the new ones in there...

no chance at all of them falling out... really!!

I was gonna say you could use a bolt & very thick washers on a bolt with nut & "pull" them into place, but see you have them in now.  I drilled through after installing the ones I made, tapped out, then installed a grease zerk.  The grease fitting also reached into the bushings to further hold them in place.

Where did you find the bushings and do you remember the part number?

Jacks small engines 44.00 shipped, I'll look at my invoice for the part number but I think you can look it up on their parts look up, I think OCH posted the part number on a early thread last week
