Default 7-tooth steering worm sector bushings

Where may I get the correct tool to install (or remove) the 7-tooth steering worm sector bushings?...two of them.

I have talked to Snap-on about a "bushing installer/removal" tool, of which I have a few, and 1) they sent me the wrong tool after I told them exactly what I wanted plus, after talking to them once again, they tell me they do not have the correct size. On top of that, they still do not know what I want!

The bushings are OD 1.252 and ID 1.125.

Who else carries this item?

Thanks.

Pluck

If you or a friend have a metal lathe it shouldn't be hard to make something.

last one I did I used a hack saw to nearly cut through in 2 places near each other then used a cape chisel to peel out the piece, then the bushings fell out, then used a socket to push new bushings in, then on to the sunnen hone to fit the bushings

It would only take a few minutes on the lather to make up a tool for that..
