I found it pretty straightforward on getting the old drive shaft bushing out prepared to install new okie bushing. Using wood block and hammer to drive it in but does not seem to want to go in? Even heated up the torque tube to see if it would go in but no different. What can I check or do to make driving this in possible?

Great idea thank you for the help. I remeasured the bushing and torque tube looks like it was to big to start with called jim Carter and exchanged the part for the correct size bushing should be here today I hope. I'll update when finished thanks again!

Got the correct okie bushing and when to town on it yesterday with some home run sledgehammer swings got it all the way in! Got it up in the air on 4 jack stands to avoid rolling . De bured spline with fine sand paper and was very happy with the results.
