tailshaft bushing, can I replace it?

Hello, is it hard to replace a tailshaft bushing on a 700r4 s-10 2.8L long bed 2wd. automatic, or do I need to take the tail section to a trans shop? If its pressed in then I am out of luck since I dont have a press.

The tail shaft housing will come off the trans easy enough, but you need the proper sized mandrel so that you can drive the bushing out of the housing. Likewise the same proper sized mandrel must be used to reinstall the new bushing. You might be lucky enough to have a socket that is the right size for this.

The surest and easiest way is to take the tail housing and shaft to a shop and have it installed. If my memory serves me, you have to remove the housing anyway.

I believe the 700r4 and the t350 have the same diameter shaft and bushing, Maybe someone you know has the puller and driver? Or just pull the tail housing and take it to a tranny shop and ask them to change it. Won't take but about 2 minutes.
