my split bushing were able to be tapped in by hand. on one i just used a C clamp to help press in all the way.

The rtab tool is mostly for taking stock out. it also will work on pressing in a stock one piece in. but on split two piece bushings that have the "brims' on the outside the tool doesn't really work as well. as the bushing is wider and covers the rta hub where the tool would rest on. so instead of metal tool "feet" on the metal of the rta, it would be on the bushing. split two piece bushing are easy to fit. a rubber mallet is all that would be needed.
