Brendan, you just opened a can of worms.

I just replaced lift cover and bushings and rock shaft on my 65, because the shaft, bushings and cover were worn far beyond a simple bushing replacement. If your bushings easily slide out of the lift cover, your cover is probably shot as well. Replacement lift cover is available through the store here, but has 9/16" lift cylinder stud holes rather than your probably original 1/2", so you may want to upgrade the lift cylinder while you're at it.

The new bushings should be a press fit in the cover (bush diam = bore diam -.001). The rockshaft may be significantly worn (and at that point, egg shaped at the bearing points), so check it with mics (not calipers) in several places around the bearing points. If it is only out by a thou or two, have the shaft turned, if more than that, replace the shaft. Either way, once the bushings are installed in the cover, they will need to be line bored to fit the shaft (shaft diam +.003). Both of those operations benefit from having a machine shop and skilled machinist do the work. Not that you aren't that person, but as an FYI for anyone else reading this.

I'm definitely not a machinist by any means, so thanks for sharing your experience. The bushings were a tight fit in the cover, hopefully the shaft isn't too worn, the old bushings are pretty loose on it. I've got new bushings and seals on the way. I'm hoping it takes some of the slack out of it. I rarely use the 3pt hitch but I was going through the rest of the machine so I figured I should fix this while I had it apart. I'll keep you posted.
