They'll act as thrust washers, I see no issue.

Default Removing delrin bushes

For Reasons, I need to swap my RUCA-I delrin bushes into a new arm. They are proving difficult to remove without damage. I have removed the grease nipples and the pin, but the bushes themselves are tight in the housing.

Any tips?

Thanks!

All good now. Took a deep breath, and a not-so-sharp chisel, added hammer, and worked the bush out. For those playing at home, even fully housed there is a gap between the two halves of a completed bushing. You only need to move the first half bushing out a few mm - enough to get a half decent angle on the gap from the other side of the bush, then get a blunt screwdriver and gently drive the bush out. Once one half is out, its mate comes easily.

Yea i have a weirdly thin, bent, alignment punch bar that i try to get in the gap and once started, they come right out. Sounds like you figured out the method. Worst case scenario you burr one a little near the ID and file it out.
