Re: pilot bearing?
The pilot bearing in the flywheel acts as a carrier for the input shaft on the trans , so has a guide to carry it . That poor little bearing gets a lot of abuse, since it takes up any deflection from the clutch . I will never change a clutch without replacing one , I know I'd regret it pretty fast . Make sure to use a bit of waterproof grease on the input shaft sleeve for the throwout bearing , and the arm's finger tips that push it .
