Product Description

It is recommended to replace the pilot bearing when installing a new clutch. The heavy duty roller pilot bearing installs in the rear of the crankshaft.

This Ford Racing 1979-1995 Mustang 5.0L clutch pilot bearing provides a rotating link between the engine crankshaft and the transmission input shaft.

When the clutch is not fully applied, the engine crankshaft speed and the transmission input shaft speed are different. The clutch pilot bearing allows the transmission input shaft—which extends into the engine crankshaft—to rotate independently at these times.

When the clutch is fully applied, the engine crankshaft and transmission input shaft rotate as one and the clutch pilot bearing is not needed.

5 Stars   Perfect Fit, Easy Install, Terrible Removal
By on 10/16/2014
I installed this during a recent clutch job. This unit was high quality, came pre-greased, fit perfectly, and quieted down my clutch-disengaged whine.

The existing unit was a whole other story. Its grease was virtually gone, it made terrible noises when the clutch was disengaged, and it was seized to the crankshaft. I tried various hydraulic methods (wet paper towels and a socket extension, thick grease and a socket extension) for literally 4hrs and it didn't even budge a mil. The car is 22yo with 126K mi on it so I wasn't surprised. Ultimately, I had to very carefully cut into the races with a hack saw until it was near the edge of the outer race where it meets the crankshaft. Then I rented a slide hammer with a bearing hook to break it out in two pieces. So after about 5hrs of work getting it out, it took all of 5mins to put the new one in.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Great fit and product! Just like the original! Put in freezer overnight and sprayed outside with canned lithium grease prior to install. It went right in with a hammer and 1 inch impact socket.
