Have you read through the Accurizing tips? #1 talks about it and perhaps doing a search on gas bushing installation will give more info.

Undo the gas block screws after you have disassembled the stock and action. The stock bushing should drop out of the gas block, it also holds the gas pipe in. Replace with a new size and line up the gas pipe to the bushing slot, attach back to barrel.
