Resizing king pin bushings

The king pin kit for the 49 chev had new bushings that were over sized. Looks like most people have them fit in the machine shop. I resized the OD of mine in the lathe,
with an old pin. It could be done in a drill press with a home made spindle. Saved my self a 20 spot.
I glued the bushing on the pin with ONE drop of super glue.
To hold it while I used sand cloth on it's OD. A little heat will free it up.
if that doesn't work
