    OK just took the clutch off and ready to install the new one but does a bearing or a bushing go in the flywheel. The clutch came with both and when i removed the old one nothing was in the flywheel hole.
    The truck is a 88 k-5 350 with a Sm 345 12' clutch

    Also all of the bolts holding the clutch on had flat washers, the new clutch says not to use flat washers or lock washers. IS this normal.​

    slip that bushing over the input shaft of the trans to make sure it fits first. That's something you want to find out now rather than while trying to install the trans.
