    Ok, how do i get the old one out? I'm putting in an SM465 in place of my th350 and they are different sizes, how does on go about gettting the old one off of the crankshaft?

    Also, does anyone have a picture of how the clutch pedal bolts up?

    If there's one in there, it's very simple (although I don't see how there would be one in there if it was an auto, maybe engine had a straight drive behind it before). All you have to do is dab a little wheel bearing grease in the hole and find you a rod that is just slightly smaller than that of the pilot bushing. Simple hydraulics. Tap the rod into the center of the pilot bushing and the grease will force the bushing out. Easy as that boss.

    Not sure about all year but some models that came with an auto did not come with the bracket that lets you bolt up the clutch peddle. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif You may need the bracket that fits over the Steering column out of a 4 speed truck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    On a particularly stubborn pilot bearing, the grease method didn't work for me. I did happen to have a big ole' tap that I used to thread-out the center of the bushing. Then used the same size bolt which tightened in the crank pulled the bushing out. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
