Re: What to use to remove a pilot bushing, Bread!
I've used bread once on a badly worn bushing but I didn't have much luck due to the bread working its way out the gap between the input shaft tool used to compress the bread and the bushing, so I resorted to a using a sharp chisel to cut a groove along the inside to extract it.
But, I've used bread many times when soldering pipes/fittings on existing plumbing that may have residual water in them, even after draining the line.
Anyone who has done this knows the water can have an impact on getting the joint hot enough for solder to flow properly.
Pack the pipes with bread on both sides past the area you plan on soldering and presto....no water effecting the heating of the joint.
When the water supply is turned on, the bread eventually dissolves.
