automatic transmission bushing

ok well i bought a 91 240sx it didnt run at the time and i thought it had a blown head gasket but when i pulled the motor i found two holes in the side of the block. so i bought a used dual cam motor from a guy that did my friends sr swap. the motor was an automatic and the guy said i would have to change a few things but nothing major. so today i tried for a couple of hours and many trips the the autoparts store to try and get the automatic bushing out of the crank so i can put the manual one in. i have tried slide hammers and bearing pullers with no luck. . the pullers didnt work because there isnt enough lip on the bushing for the pullers to grab a hold of. so if there is any special trick or advice to pulling this out please let me know

Dremel it out. Make slits down the sides and eventually it will crack in on itself. The one in my engine was stuck when I did a 5 speed coversion. major PITA.

I assume you already tried the grease and plunger method? It didn't work for me but it might work for you
