    OK guys...

    OK guys - got a kit with clutch & pressure plate. inside is a small bushing, and non of my manuals tell me where it goes. I am assuming that it goes inside of the clutch in the crank, but I want to verify this.

    If you are sure it is a bushing and not a throwout bearing, then your are correct, it is the pilot bushing, it goes in the end of the crank in the center of the flywheel and the input shaft of the tranny rest in there...

    yea that's exactly what it is. doesn't the throw out bearing attach to the clutch fork?

    yup
    to get your old BUSHING out you can fill the hole with grease and find a socket that has same OD as bushing ID and use it to 'hydraulic' the old one out
    if it is the BEARING style you have to get a puller or cut it out with a chisel
