  • auto/manual-swap...quick question

    I'm confused on what needs to be done about the pilot bushing, and mounting the flywheel.

    Crankshaft of motor originally manual trans

    Crankshaft of auto

    So if I understand this correctly, I need to remove the marked peice (or drill out with a 13/16th bit) to clear the input shaft of the manual trans (also marked).

    The bushing/bearing next to the clutch fork on the input shaft is the throw out bearing correct? Where is the pilot bushing?

    I guess I'm confused on how things are "supposed" to be...and how I'm gonna get that ring out of the crankshaft.

    I wrap my paper weights in glitter.

    The pilot bushing is the thing in question in the back end of the crankshaft. Remove the big one from the new engine and put a new one for a manual in its place.

    Yes the thing on the clutch fork is your throwout bearing. Replace it....

            I managed to get the ring pulled from the auto motor. Had to file down a puller and jam it in there. Was such a tight fit I had to cut the ring off of the puller once it was out.

            I also pulled the pilot bushing but bent it in the process. Hopefully the dealer will have one in stock.

            Need to verify which is the correct one for an 87T 5-speed.
