Okay, so I'm trying to put the gas pedal linkage back on my Spifire Mk2 and I am replacing the 2 bushings that the linkage fits into. One on each side of the bulkhead, facing each other. I have tried brute strength (forcing them in)and they crumble. I have warmed them, they crumble. I have soaked them in very hot water, (accelerator bushing tea anyone?)they dissolve. Is there some archaic trick, known only to Druid's and very old Triumph assembly line workers, on how to fit these things? Or is it just get them to fit the best way possible and hope.
