    Well i got everything that I was told to get, the pilet bushing doesnt fit in the hole in the crank, is it supposed to be hammered in or should it slide in? And, does the part on the clutch disk, in the center, the part that sticks out go up to the block or away from it? Pics would be great.

    The pilot bearing should be a press fit. You should know this if you took the old pilot bearing out. Are you trying to swap a new engine also? If so, clean the bore to make sure there no rust and other crap and hammer the bearing in. Use a socket as a diver if have to drive the bearing in straight.
    I believe the clutch disk when new should have something say "THIS SIDE TOWARD FLYWHEEL" or "THIS SIDE TOWARD PRESSURE PLATE".

    Use some kind of alignment tool to keep everything straight when bolting the pressure plate on.

    I was actually swapping out a auto and in with a manual, i got it all together. I just need to wait for my buddy to come over so we can bench press the tranny up and on the motor.

    Gee, that was fast. Did you wander into the garage to ponder what to do and figure it out on your own what do before I posted?
