Default picture request

Does anyone have pictures of the pilot bearing and the end of the input shaft that goes into the pilot bearing? I am just trying to see what it looks like.

The pilot bearing doesn't "sit" on the input shaft. Your pilot bearing is stuck in the center of the flywheel. It's a roller bearing pressed into the center of your flywheel..

like a roller bearing thats 3/4inch tall and i.d. of your imput and o.d. of the hole in the flywheel

this just lets the imput shaft have something to ride on so less stress is put on the main/imput shafts

Input shaft



Bearing (NOTE SEAL, THIS MUST FACE INTO THE BELL HOUSING, OR CLUTCH DUST WILL EAT UP YOUR BEARING)


Bearing on input shaft, just to show you where it sits. The bearing is pressed into your flywheel in real life.
