I think I have just done the most retarded thing ever. Completely finished installing the manual gearbox, and just realised I forgot to put a spigot bearing in. Before I pull it all off again can someone just confirm for me that autos definitely don't have a spigot bearing in the back of the crankshaft?

Not sure what box was behind this bottom end previously, so I guess I've got to remove it and check now. Spewing.

auto's have a little round part on the end of the convertor that sits in where a manual spigot bush sits.

Ive also seen damage caused by not having the bush - Input shaft bearings and retainer chewed out.

Fix it right.

You would have to be a retard to try that. The bearing is $5.40 brand new for an SKF one from Repco and a few hours to remove the box and refit vs the big chance of damage.

I think the chances are more like 100% it will kill the box without a spigot bearing.

5.40 i paid roughly double that for one from repco when i did mine, I wish i knew the part number though, as my mate had about 3 there already, ohwell.

as above, it'll kill the box and dont forget the pilot bearing makes sure the driven plate is in the centre.

No for Autos having a bearing.

Ford make an awesome bearing, I bought on a few weeks ago, was iirc $27, I'll update and included the p/n and price.

Sure any maker will work, but there are just some parts that exceed competition standards.
