TH350 Bushing Tool drawing post?

I seem to remember a post fairly recently (last 3 months) on this forum of a link to a drawing for a TH350 bushing driver tool. It had dimensions and a good sketch.

I've got a nice chunk of aluminum bar stock on the lathe right now so would like to find the drawing and had no luck with the search.

Jake

I've read somewhere that you can use a camshaft bearing driver to remove/replace the bushings. Just a thought.

jake,
are you talking about one of the multi-fit bushing driver tools?

Tony,
Yes.

I swear I downloaded a drawing with dims, but can't find it on either the desktop or laptop and can't remember where I got it.

I got a 24" piece of 2 3/8" 6061 bar stock and already have a rough cut made.
I can measure some bushings and just draw it up myself, could have already done it with the time I've spent searching for the drawing...

Jake, Are any trans bushing sizes close to these? They have a Metric & Standard set, the handle looks kinda short tho'. The Standard set specs aren't online.

Type the #'s in the Item Search box >>
Metric Set = #95853
Standard = #92387

Hi jakeshoe,
I was the one asking for pics of bushing driver.
I found diameters in Ron Sessions book on page 194
When I get home I will post some pics of what a guy made for me of steel pipes.
I installed all bushings on my TH350 with no problem.
I can scan the page if you cannot find bushing sizes.
Best regards,
Ivo

The multi-fit bushing drivers I've had all ended up machined to different applications.

I've got one for setting a t-700 case bushing to the height I want. I wack it with a hammer till the bushing is set in place.

I use individual bushing driver with an arbor press - ratcheting type

Yep,
I'll make and modify this driver as I start using it.
Just wanted a rough drawing to know the dimensions.

I'll go ahead and pull out a TH400 bushing kit and make a driver for it too.

Got sidetracked today framing up the bathroom in my shop.

One custom bushing driver I have machined up... used this design for many years.

A t-350 direct drum bushing driver.

some folks may recognize what part I cut up to make this driver.

I don't recognize it... LOL

I just came in from the shop. I had a 200-4R direct drum on the lathe making it flat and smooth.

I found the measurements in the Ron Sessions book. I actually used my halfway made tool to install the rear bushing in the 200-4R.

Today's project was beginning the 700-R4 install and cam swap into this ride:

I've got a couple of different generic bushing driver kits.
Some are "tapered" and they work great for some applications but they don't support the bushings for an auto trans.

I'm guessing that's whats in the link posted.

I usually use my cam bearing installation tool for many of the bushings but it has limitations. It won't do the very small bushings such as stator bushings and it some sizes like the output bushing of a TH350/700/200 are too small for one of the adapters, but at the upper end of the other adapter, so you have to be careful not to raise a burr because it doesn't have 360* support on the edge of the bushing.

The good thing about the cam bearing tool is it provides a snug ruber lined surface for the ID of the bushing.

Once I get done making the bushing drivers for the shop, it will be a time saver. I've rebuilt so many transmissions I could have paid for a bushing driver kit 100 times over, but I wouldn't know what to do with one. LOL

Too many tools in the shop now, scattered about, I've spent the last week and a half re-organizing while trying to get work done at the same time.

other side of the tool:



I can not imagine not having a bushing driver set that is engineered for the trans industry. I bought mine when they were under 200.00usd.
