Need to install the bush in my new layshaft 3rd gear. The bush has holes in it and the gear has scrolling inside. How do I orient the bush?

Should the bushes on all of the gears be sliding fits. They are all stuck in the gears at present. This bike was wrecked and I think it had very few miles on it(speedo missing). Apparently somebody drained the gearbox a long time ago as their was just a little dried up residue of lube in it. Should I press the bushes out and free them.

Layshaft 3rd and mainshaft 2nd should both be a sliding fit. Layshaft 1st should be tight.

Thanks guys. Took a bit of polishing the bush with fine emery paper but both of the ones in the scrolled gears are now a sliding fit.
