I've also seen (in extreme cases) people take a dremel and get in there and grind out a spot on the bearing and thn take a chisel and a hammer and give it a good wack to crack it. then it will slide right out. But Id use that as a last resort or just be sure you have a steady hand and you dont grind all the way through to the crank itself. Good luck man!

fill the middle of the pilot bearing with a thick grease and find a bolt just the same size as the hole in the middle and hit the head of the bolt with a hammer make shure the bolt is just smaller than the hole but not too small. repack it with grease as needed and this will drive the bushing out with hydrolic pressure around the shaft of the bolt. this leaves the bushing undamaged and could be reused if needed

He cant reuse the bushing. A special bushing has to be purchased from novak or AA that fits the Jeep crank but accepts the np435's output shaft. But your right, thats the way most people I have seen get them out.

yea i have read the dremel technique and drilling four holes CAREFULLY into the piolt bushing then breaking it into quarters to get it out. lol i have been procrastinating doing anything with it latley its the end of the semester and i have like 6 lab reports due and then some finals. i am going to get a thing of vasoline and try that because thats the thickest grease i can think of and its cheap if you dont buy name brand lol. and get the 7/8ths bolt and give it a wack. and yes grntj is right this pilot bushing can get destroyed because i am never using it again i had to order a new one... which i was wondering if ya guys knew since its new is it supposed to be damn tight trying to slip it over the input shaft? just curious or is it not really suppose to slide over it and just kinda be a guide, im going to wire wheel my input shaft (painted it black to stop it from rusting anymore) and see whats up

you can use just wheel bearing grease. i always save my old pilot bushings i have needed them before in a pinch they also work good for making other things too.

If you have a variety of 1/4" drive sockets, you can find one that fits pretty good, plus the grease. Use socket and an 1/4" drive extension.
