    Putting a 6.2 from a 2wd auto sub in my truck.
    The crank shaft on my old motor has a bushing for the 465 input shaft, but the "new" motor doesn't.

    What do I need to do to make this work?

    Can I buy a bushing and press/hammer it in?

    I'm just about ready to drop it in, but am looking for answers..........

    Thanks,

    Steve

    The 6.2 uses a pilot bearing, so i installed a new pilot bearing. It's just a press in deal, but if you use the bearing make sure to pack a little grease in there.
