Is all this just to get something to centralise your clutch plate??

You have the dimensions off the input shaft,it doesn't have to be within thou's...a piece of broom handle whittled down will do it....

Yes, it is :oops: I do already have a Ford tool, plastic, that has the right size for the pilot bearing/bushing and I
just whittled the splined part down to fit the splined hub of the disc. Just kinda looking for something 'better' .
Thank you for bringing me back to reality. :D
