Harley,

I've only fitted one, an Ed Brown. Tab was fine on mine (probably on all of them) but entire OD had to have material CAREFULLY removed in a symetrical fashion. I have a small lathe in my garage so it was no problem for me.

You might try centering the bushing on a bolt with a couple washers and nuts so that you make a mandrel. Chuck the end of the home-made mandrel in your drill and use this to rotate the bushing. Use strips of emery/crocus cloth to gradually remove material from the OD. Very time consuming, but with a little patience you could be confident of a good, tight fit. Keep your calipers handy and check the OD often. You can always take more off, but you can't put it back on... Enjoy.
