hey. just spoke to john. verbatim, "throw it away".I wanted to know something. When you remove the torque plate (auto flywheel) there is a spacer on the crank. In other words, it is sandwiched in between the torque plate and crank. what i want to know is, do you have to remove it when you install the manual flywheel or do you leave it on? To clear any confusion, it's about a 1/4 inch thick, removable and has 8 holes just like the crank.
and for the pilot bearing question you had, he said there is an installer that you use to install is, and you put it in till its flush.
