Installing T-5 Have some questions
I'm installing an advanced adapters WC T-5 which is replacing my busted T-5 in an '82 CJ7 with 258. It came with a new copper colored pilot bushing- I looked in my crankshaft and there is a needle bearing in there, not a bushing. It looks fine, can I just reuse it, or do I need to put in the bushing? If so, grease or oil? The manual mentions a wick that needs to be oiled and intalled, currently there isn't one and the autoparts store doesn't list it. Where do I get one if I need one?
The tranny came with a new clutch disc, what's the best way to prep the flywheel/clutch cover? I was thinking of scuffing it with sandpaper. Right now the surface is really smooth and glassy, like a brake disc.
