SuperPro’s Press Kit has been wildly popular in Australia for professional installers and DIY mechanics. The Press Kit is now available in the US.
Many shops use some combination of bearing shells, sockets or sections of exhaust tubing as makeshift bushing installation and removal tools. SuperPro took the opportunity to offer a quicker, safer and more effective solution to ease bushing removal and installation of SuperPro bushings.
Unlike bearings or sockets which are heat-treated steel and can shatter the SuperPro press sleeves are mild steel and will distort or crush if over-pressed making for a safer workshop. The sleeves can also be easily machined to suit specific jobs.
18 steel sleeves are included in the kit; covering nearly all common bushing sizes. OD sizes range from 20mm to 113mm and ID sizes range from 20 to 105mm with each sleeve individually numbered so single replacements can be had if a sleeve is lost or damaged. For a shop this is safety, efficiency, and profitability in a box, for the home mechanic in their own garage it brings a typically daunting and specialized job into the DIY realm.
