good. Nobody caught my misstake. 3/4" bushing would have fell out with 25/32 drill.
Probably should go 1/64" below 3/4" and ream to fit. That means 23/64'
Mistake was made as I used that drill to fix my worn hydraulic lift arm pins.I replaced the 5/8' pins with "millameter" MM bolts as I could get bolt with about .015" clearance with I think is 21mm. and nuts with plastic so they don't loosen.
Had to anneal knuckles as they are harden. Heat with actylene, cool slowly in outdoor wood furnace.
Decide to have a shop do the hole wideing and ream so things remain true. They also have hydraulic press fop putting in the bushings and center pin bushing.
Plan on using worn center pivot pin as the pin has an extra length that was only half machined out so a bolted keeper kept it from untheading . Hammer pin in after 1/4 turn, about 3.8"(worn area then in worn threader area of bolster). Tack weld front and back.
GOOD FOR MY LIFETIME
