I used a press but you'll find threads here where people used threaded rod and wood.

Follow the manual for correct depth placement inside the aluminum.

Read through the manual's instructions. There's something about a 1mm clearance and something about clock position of the bushings. It's all in there.

Yes, you're right. It's been a while since I did the job. 0mm with .7mm tolerance.
