The Bushing has a slot in the ID. to promote oiling, when pressing the bushing into the tail stock ensure the slot aligns with the oiling valley in the tail stock housing.
The proper depth of the bushing can be determined when the bushing sits flush with the tailstock recess in which it is fitted. ( see image below ).
We do not recommend tapping or driving the bushing into place, as it may deform the bushing.
