I'm replacing the clutch assembly on my 88 2.5 liter 5 speed. The kit came with a pilot bushing, but the tailshaft of the transmission has nothing past the spline, and the hole in the flywheel does not appear to recieve any sort of bushing, also there was nothing in there when I took the clutch assembly off. Can anyone confirm or deny that a bushing should be in there?

I went through all of this on the 19th, and I was advised that "not needed" from about 3-4 different members here. Some one said that an 84 used them , but no to the rest. I took mine back out cause I didnt want anything keeping it from working correctly.

Ok, I can confirm that, my 84, 4- speed used a pilot bushing that looked just like the one that came with the assembly. Has your's held up ok so far?
I havent put the drive train back in the car yet. I hope to have it back in by next Friday. I didnt have one in it before, and my clutch problem wasnt from the lack of a pilot bushing. I had maybe 4 miles on it before I dropped it out to replace the clutch fork. No strange noises or anything. Joe
