Question Toploader question

Tried replacing the tailstock bushing today in my toploader. I figured i could drift it in with a wooden block and hammer. Basically I ended up with a mess. so I got it out and now need to try again. I am thinking of heating the tailstock, and freezing the bushing before drifting it in again. Any help here?

That will probably work. Using a press instead of a bfh will work better.

most auto repair shops have the tool to put it in.

You could try using the tool that's made for that job. Then all you need is the tool and a hammer.
