    Which pilot bearing is used in this application?

    Also, while trying to pull the old one out I took the advice of some goon and drilled some holes in it... now I can't use the hydraulic grease method. Its stuck pretty good. Any other good ideas? more drilling?

    Thanks guys

    I believe the stock 350 SBC bushing/bearing matches directly with the Toy 4-speed input shaft.

    use a bigger bit for removal, hope ya catch an edge, and it will spin out...also, a large ez-out jammed in there might do the trick too.

    Woody's right ... a stock SBC bushing/bearing matches up.

    I have to say the drilling method makes me nervous because of the crank. The grease thing just never works well.

    Get about a 5/16 x 4 inch bolt with a head that barely fits into the pilot hole. Grind off a side to the bolt head. Slide it in the hole and tuck the head in behind the bushing. Then screw a sheet metal screw in next to it to lock it in place. Now place a big socket over the bolt, some washers, and a nut and you've got a puller.
