yes.  Just because it works, doesn't mean it is correct.
You can't press a soft bushing into an interference fit hole without
altering the dimension of the bore of the bushing.
The intermediate shaft has very little load, which would explain why it
works to an extent.

    They can't be pre-reamed.  Pressing them into place makes them slightly
    smaller (the hole can't get any bigger, so the bearing gets smaller from
    interference of the fit), so the inside needs to be reamed to the proper
    dimension post-installation.

  I understand that as a concept, but have heard of many individuals (more
than 5) that have used bearings that were within tolerance once fitted
without machining afterwards.
