1951 Ultramatic Bushing Dimensions and Tools

I am interested in the inner and outer diameters and the extraction and insertions tools for a 1951 Ultramatic. I believe these would be common for 1951 - 1954 Ultramatics.

I have broken down the transmission as shown. I put together the documentation shown in the next 6 images. I purchased the blind hole bushing tool set shown. I was not successful in slide-hammering the blind hole bushing from the reaction clutch housing.

Can someone provide the dimensions for the bushings. References for tools would also be appreciated.

I have the transmission out and upside down on supports. I took out one of the pistons and the lever is visible directly under the piston opening. I can depress the lever with my finger. If the lever doesn't come out with the control body I don't think the lever or the struts will go anywhere if I lift out the control body.

What is the band strut hold-down fixture PU-308 and how is it attached? Does the lever come out with the control body? Why would the struts fall out? Please see attached image.

I have a 200 with small hubcaps. They are pretty much shot in that the chrome is flaking off in large patches. What are my options for hubcaps that will attach to this wheel? Where can I get them?

How should this be checked? Warmed-up, running in neutral?

The transmission seems to otherwise operate properly. I'm not sure that the converter is locking up. When I release the gas at 35+ MPH the transmission is surely slowing the car through its coupling to the engine. It may just be through the fluid coupling in the converter. I don't know how to test the lock-up.

After running the engine at fast idle in neutral for 1 minute then stopping it to check the level, my transmission had a stream of fluid escaping from what I think is a leak drain hole in the lower bell housing cover. I believe the converter pump shaft seal is the problem. I guess there could be leaks from the converter drain plugs also. I have someone lined-up to rebuild it but that's still weeks off. I am going to pick-up a spare transmission on Sunday and take it apart to see how it works. I will probably try to rebuild it.

Can I tow my 1951 Ultramatic? Will the rear pump keep it from burning-up? I guess the front pump only turns with the motor if in neutral?

What type transmission fluid should I be using? I started significant driving about a week ago. Approximately 125 miles driven in 5 days driving. Its spewing fluid, over 2 gallons put in over that time. I have a re-builder lined-up but that's 2 - 3 weeks out. I've been using DEX/MERC. Don't remember where I got that from.
