Have you ever wondered how to get your pilot bushing out of the crankshaft? Here's the best tip you could ever find. Quick & simple.

1. If your Pilot Bushing looks like this or worse, this will make it easy work.
3. All you have to do is take a tap ( usually a 5/8 ) and tap it through the         bushing until it makes contact with the crankshaft. .
4. Simply keep turning the tap and it will push the bushing out with very      little effort.  ( If the bushing is badly worn, use a larger tap ) This sure        beats the heck out of the "pack it with grease and drive a dowel in the      center method" and a lot less messy.    BR[]
