It is 1.1” Id (with powder coat), I don’t know if a 40 thou shoulder is enough. Maybe with tight fit. In not an inside sleeve before boring won’t be too hard.

I’m going to pull the other side before cutting on the TA. The bushings bulged on both side, I guess my contact area was too small.

I really like your solution on the johny joint, but I’m just trying to cut as little as possible.
