  2. TR3A #9 Removing the silentbloc rubber pieces. From the steering linkage bush

    I was able to push the silentblocs out of the steering linkage bush Housing with a gear puller, but the bushings left a lot of rubber behind, (that is real stubborn!).

    I don't want to damage the linkage housing by scraping it out. Got suggestions & standard practice on how to proceed from the forum.
