Otherwise, my experience is some cans will "cave in" before releasing the bushing. And with others, a light tap releases the bushing.
With the tube on in place, you cause no bending or deflection of the case when seeking to release the bushing.
As always, YMMV.

Even though you didn't ask about the can, I do exactly what Mark does, and support the inside of the can with a piece of tubing slightly larger diameter than the flange of the bushing and tap on the outside. Can metal is a soft/mild grade of steel and even light taps on a bushing that's a little tight will easily deform the bushing strap.

Thanks for the help! Since the Cahoza bushings are epoxied in, I thought they might be tough to get out.
