Install Bushings in Piston
Place spacer J 7587-1 in the counterbore in fixture J 1513-1 (small end up).
Place the piston on the fixture so that the spacer protrudes into the bushing bore.
Insert installer J 4972-2 in a bushing, then position the bushing and installer over the lower bushing
Locate the joint in the bushing toward the bottom of the piston (Fig. 6).
Insert handle J 1513-2 in the bushing installer and drive the bushing in until it bottoms on the
Install the second bushing in the same manner.
