Default Torrington Input bearing

Hi guys I am fairly new here and was wondering if anyone had any input on the Torrington input bearing versus the bronze bushing. Thanks Dan

Roller is all I will use now. The cost difference is nothing (bronze = $9, roller =$14)

Are you talking about a pilot bushing/bearing that goes in the back of the crankshaft?

Yes I believe that is what he was refering to, but I think the correct term is clutch shaft, not input shaft.

Yes, the bearing that supports the end of the transmission input shaft.

(I am getting ready to be killed when I say this);
When I make a run, I have both hands busy. I can't eat a sandwich during my run like you automatic guys. :lol: :lol: :lol:
