    After trying to remember , I cut the teeth off the original dist. shaft and hammered it in and messed w/ it till it freed up. Then used it to prime the pump later . Lost 2 priming tools and didn`t want to buy another.

    Would you mind measuring the OD of the expansion rings?

    The upper 1.500" smooth part of the shaft is .483". The rings are .487. The minor OD (grooves) of the rings are .433. The entire shank under the step is right at 1.800". The finish is very smooth. The rings have a fairly sharp edge. It's been awhile since I've used it. I called them "cutters" but I don't think they actually removed any material. Just swedged the bushing in the bore as someone else stated and burnished the bore.

    burnish - verb 1. polish (something, especially metal) by rubbing.

    swedge - verb 1. To shape metal using a hammer or other force.

      That will bring it to size, or close, but it won't swedge the bushing tight in the bore.

        Notice they fit the intermediate shaft till its "pressed" into the block?...that's called "interference" fit...and why its sized afterward.
        You're not understanding...

        Could someone essentially press a new bushing in with a spare intermediate shaft, then resize it by hammering through a shaft made with the proper OD (same as the expansion rings on the tool)? The resizing shaft could easily be spun up on a lathe.

        Would that not be honing it?

        The factory tool swages the bushing in place, while burnishing it to the proper ID.
