Pilot bushing help asap!!

Hey guys,

I ordered a new clutch and I got a pilot bushing just to see what it was. My old setup deffinetly didnt have one. It is just a metal ring for the tranny output shaft to ride on. Do I need to pound it into the crank? Do I even need to use it? Please let me know as I am trying to install it all tonight.

thanks

Mike

Yes it is just a metal ring
Yes you do need it
No do not "pound it" into the crank, I would use a wooden dowel or a large brass punch and gently tap it in.

Like Keith said.... but unless you are swapping from an automatic to a manual.... you need to take the old one out first.

But before I did anything I would place it on the front of the input shaft of the tranny and make sure it was the right fit. Should fit snug with no slop and be loose enough to spin freely. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Pilot bushing help asap!!

That must have been it. The 82 j10 I got the 360 out of had a tf727 auto. Then when I installed the t176 I never checked. My bad. The bearing seemed fine though as I had the tranny apart the other day.

I got the pilot bushing in using a wooden dowel. And yes I checked to see it fit the tranny shaft.

Thanks for the help!!

To bad the clutch kit didnt have an alignment tool. Ill get it though
