Hey guys, I am changing my truck ('89 F150, 300 Cyl) from a M5OD to an automatic. I know I need to remove the pilot bearing from the crankshaft, and have been told to find a shaft that will fit snugly into the pilot bearing and pack it with greas then tap it with a hammer. Is this the right way to remove it? Or do you guys have another trick?
Thanks man! Now I got another question for ya after I see you are a trans guru. I have a '79 model C6 and a '90 model C6, I also have a '93 AOD from a cougar. I think I want to go with a C6, between all my choices. My question for you is: Is there a difference between a '79 C6 and a '90 C6? And if I do go with the AOD, is the bolt pattern of the flywheel the same as the C6? I already have a flywheel for the C6 is why I ask.
Also if I do go with the AOD, I know I'm supposed to use a trans PSI gauge to properly adjust the TV cable, can you explain how to do that?
--Pilot removal: On my '65 Mustang, I used a bolt just a little larger than the opening, and threaded it into the bronze. Once a couple threads are engaged, you can lever the bushing out. The grease/tp push out has been reported to work well here also.
--C6 vs. AOD: A '93 AOD is a good candidate, as many AOD issues had been fixed. Was this a V8? Even better. You are going to miss the OD with $5 gas...
