Yes, it is possible, but you will need to modify the bushing. You would modify the parting-line side face of the larger outer diameter of the bushing, and machine back to ensure the back of the bushing body does not protrude past the locating ring. Please note that you cannot machine the front tip-end face of the bushing back, meaning that you will have a thicker stripper plate.
Optionally you can use an ER-Series (Short Style) Straight Shot Bushing, machine back the parting line face of the larger outer diameter of the bushing as described above, and you will need to add the taper to the front of the bushing body to match with the internal taper of the replacement stripper bushing.
1. Customers are required to machine the taper onto a T-series or TR-Series Straight Shot Hot Sprue Bushing body, in order to match with the internal taper of the replacement stripper bushing. The taper at the tip end of the T-Series Straight Shot Hot Sprue bushing is not delivered in a pre-machined format.
2. The S-Series, E-Series (long style), ER-Series (long style), T-Series and TR-Series Straight Shot Hot Sprue Bushings have a 0.31 inch diameter flow channel. The E-Series (short style) and the ER-Series (short style) Straight Shot Hot Sprue Bushings have a 0.25 inch diameter flow channel. Care must be taken when using a short-style E or ER-Series Straight Shot Hot Sprue bushing to replace a T or TR-Series Straight Shot Hot Sprue bushing, as the flow channel sizes are different.
