I GOT THE BUSHING!!!!!!!!!!!
ok... the one in the tranny needs to be there or the bolt will flop
around... it doesnt look like it but its at least 2" long in
a hole. i finally got the brass bushing off of the motor! i took a flathead
screwdriver and pounded it with a mini sledge
until it made a hole in it then used the screwdriver to pry it off.
there was no way it was coming off with pliers or vice grips...

now the engine went forward... but it wont go the last .5"
id like to say i know the clutch is lined up perfectly but my dad did it.
after he used the tool he had a bit of a puzzled look. i asked him "you sure
its perfect?"
"ya im sure its perfect" he said
if thats the case ill only have one parent soon.
good thing hes on vacation.

thats the only thing that could be keeping it out that last .5" right?
