'73 shift rod u-joint

Figured I'd ask before I get the big hammer out. '73 Side Shifter Trans (later style shift linkage)

Forget whatever happened to the ones that were in there, just suddenly very sloppy, no 4th or 5th. Didn't realize they could just disintegrate.

But for the life of me, can't figure out how to get the new ones in. Guessing you drift out
the round rod in the middle, but sure does look like one piece of metal.

Heat up the new rubber/plastic bushings? Squeeze 'em in when hot?

Thanks for any ideas, and here pix of what I'm looking at

Press the pin in the middle out, put the bushings in from the inside, put the joint back together, press the pin back in.

The cage is pretty easy to crack, so make sure to support it well so you're not just putting pressure on the cage.
