Is there a video to show the best way to peen a bushing?
Ok, I understand it know, I thank you very muchPeening is the act of deforming a metal part by striking it with a hammer, or using a punch type tool and striking it with a hammer, against the part.
Usually it is dome to enlarge the part on the end, so it doesn't fit back through an opening.
A "Ball peen" hammer has a round end designed for this purpose.
Makes good sense. Thank youAs stated above not everyone peens bushings.
If the hole in the plate is sized properly, the bushing will hold in place just from the tight fit, - done.
If the bushing is a looser fit, enough to possibly fall out, some will peen them to ensure they stay put.
Others use Loctite, which is sacrilegious to some, but works well if properly applied.
