Pilot bearing removal
If you go to replace your clutch and want to replace the bronze solid pilot bearing here is a tip. Provided you don't have a pilot bearing puller.
I know, I know, I saw all those tricks on youtube, too, but I can guarantee this one works because I did it!
Get only a few sheets of toilet paper and drop them in a small bowl of water. Find a round punch about 5/8" or less. You can wrap duct tape around it to make a tight semi waterproof seal. I then sprayed a fast shot of liquid wrench on the bearing. I began to then stuff, at first, a small wad of wet paper into the center hole of the bearing. Keep repeating this until you have the center hole more than filled. I used a small ball peen hammer to start jamming the wet paper into and around the back of the bearing. It may take a few tries to totally fill the void behind the bearing. Within five minutes or so, the bearing started to move out! I stuffed more paper in the hole and then used a bigger ballpeen to completely walk out the bearing. Amazing!
I didn't think it was going to work, but it did. The bearing came out with all the paper stuck to the back of it. Hydraulic pressure pushed it out.
Good luck, no scam here, it worked for me!
