An update :
A local machine shop press the shaft out for us.
Initially they thought they might need to cut and thread a metal plate to match the outer tube thread and provide a holding plate but then they simply grabbed it in a turning machine and pushed the shaft out slowly.
In the picture you’ll see there isn’t a huge amount of corrosion but enough to block the rotation against the plastic bushing.
Now I’ll sand it clean, and remount every thing.
I’m thinking mcLube sailkote dry lube for lubrification of the shaft/bushing interface. Any other advice ?
