Yes your vehicle has a pilot bushing. It will be in the center of the flywheel. The tip of the input shaft goes into the bushing to add support to the input shaft. It will be either a bronze bushing or a needle bearing. There are one of two ways to extract it. Remove the flywheel and knock it out from the back side. Or you can buy a pricey tool that spreads internally to catch the back side and pull it out. My favorite way and the cheap way is to pack grease in the hole in the center and get a wood dowel that fits snugly in to the center of the bearing. Place the dowel in the hole and use a hammer to sharply hit the end of the dowel. The way this works is a simple principal of hydraulics. The pressure from the dowel being hit forces the grease in to the hole and the pressure of the grease pushes the old pilot bearing out of the hole since liquids are not compressable. Then just tap the new pilot bushing or bearing in to the hole. The trick is to get a dowel that just goes in to the hole snugly with very little clearance so the grease can not squeeze out past the dowel when hit. Trust me this works well. I have done this hundreds of times. Good luck. Feel free to inquire more if you need more help. Ley me know how it goes for you.

I want to make sure I am assembling my clutch correctly on my chevy. It is a small block with a muncie trans and a 11'' clutch. I just need the correct directions. I am having problems with clutch not...


Prety simple job here. Sounds like you either have not put the pilot bushing in the end of the crankshaft, have not lubed it, have the incorrect one, or have the clutch disc put in backward. lets take them one at a time: 1 no pilot bushing, this is self explanatory. 2 No lube, you need a small dab of grease on the very end of the trans input shaft, where it slides into the pilot bushing. 3 Incorrect bushing, the pilot bushing should slide easily on to the end of the trans. input shaft, but should not be loose and able to flop around. Clutch disc installed backward, the disc is flat on one side and the hub sticks out on the other side, the side with the hub sticking out goes in away from the flywheel, it actually sticks into the clutch cover plate( pressure plate).

Finding the right pilot busing for my jeep cherokee


The easiest way to fix that would be to take both bushings to a machine shop and get them to machine a bushing that will fit. It may cost a few bucks but it will probably save you a ton of time trying to find one to buy that will fit. Hope this helps.

Replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7


Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.

Swaping a manual jeep trans for an automatic trans


As far as the swap goes you can get everything you need from a you pull it junk yard. But it isnt going to be an easy swap. If you have never done this type of work before I would highly recomend consulting a professional.

But I must ask, why on earth would you want an automatic trans for off-roading?!?

1976 jeep cj7 transmition


Not a lot to go on here! But, Sounds like this has an auto trans? If it has, get a socket on the front crankshaft pulley nut, turn the engine just a bit back an forth. If you hear a metal to metal 'clunking', then remove the inspection cover at the front bottom of the trans. Now move the flywheel with a screwdriver, you will find that the flex-plate is loose or broken. If its a manual trans, None of this applies! Frankster016
