Pilot bearings needed?
While researching my Duratec 3.0L to 944 trans swap, I discover that the Ford Duratec/MX75 trans (transverse factory setup) does not use a pilot. I intend on using the Ford flywheel and the clutch parts from the MX75, as the clutch bolts up at the engine side and slides onto the 944 shaft at the trans side. I know that others have had pilot concerns with mating the 944 to other engines, but Ford has demonstrated that if conditions are right, a pilot is not needed.
So my question is, do I need the pilot? If so, why.
