Not finding Pilot bearing/ bushing

Recommended Posts

So I am changing a clutch on my 2001 5 spd 4wd and the old pilot bushing failed and exploded which caused the clutch to fail. the issue I am having is that my flywheel has a 6205nse c3 bearing machined into it, which has a 0.9525" (25mm) id and the needle bearing that came with my new clutch has a 1.0025 od, doesn't seem to want to go- also the bushing that exploded was just a brass bushing and not a needle bearing. the guys at Napa who are usually pretty good are stumped and say they haven't seen this application on this truck before. this suckscan anyone help?

I am pretty sure mine came factory with the bushing and not a bearing. My new clutch came with a bushing IIRC.

As far as I know all the stock flywheels use THIS bearing, and most aftermarket ones use THIS heavier duty bearing.

i looked at that "heavier duty 16352rs and it is quite a bit smaller od than the one that I pulled out of my flywheel. it looks like the ID on the 1635 2rs will fit directly on the pilot shaft, where as the bearing I have appears to need a new bushing. this is all very confusing.
