I managed to get the old bush out of the connecting rod by using a hacksaw blade and splitting it out of the conrod being careful not to hacksaw into the conrod. i then replaced the bush with a new one which came without the two oil holes in it so i drilled them once the new bush was in place. After offering up the new gudgeon pin its seems its going to be a very tight fit into the new bush so i will have to sand the new bush down evenly with some wet and dry paper (may be should have checked this while the bush was out of the conrod i think it may have been easier to sand down), i then prepared the barrel to take the new piston by deglazing it with some wet and dry paper this will give the new compression rings and oil ring a chance to bed into the barrell wall.
