Bearing Soaking In Oil

This truck had a hard life and with only 140,000 miles on the odometer the input bearing had turned to dust. Since we ended up with a larger input shaft tip, we had to swap it out anyway. We used Advanced Adapter’s oil-impregnated bronze input bushing and soaked it in motor oil overnight before installing it. This much-larger-than-stock bushing sits further out on the crank so it contacts a fresh and smooth section of the input which helps keep clutch chatter at bay.
