Consider the following before mailing:

We wish we were able to answer general technical questions, but the sheer volume of mail we get requires that we focus only on our customers and prospective customers to whom we have a duty.

We focus generally on GM powertrain swaps into Jeeps, and with some expertise in classic Ford swaps into Jeeps, and some limited classic Dodge swaps into Jeeps, and other products as outlined in our Catalog. We are not likely able to help outside of this.

If you are exchanging parts from Jeeps to Jeeps, consider the truism that "the hardest parts to swap into Jeeps are Jeep parts" and that we probably don't have the answer to help.

Frequently-Asked

Take an entertained moment and scan our Mythology vs. Actual Observances article. If one could condense four decades of Jeep conversion sense into one short article, then we think we've done it.

Your Details

It is most helpful to us for you to let us know as many relevant details about your Jeep and project as possible. Tire size and axle ratio (actual or intended, to the best of your knowledge), anticipated use or style of driving (trails? street? rocks? racing? all the above?) can be very useful.

Let us know your name, so we will know to whom we should respond. Your full name and your postal code are helpful if you are requesting components and would like a shipping estimate. Note our emphatic Privacy Policy if you are concerned about spam.

Requests for Instructions

Existing customers may request that product instructions be sent to them. Please have your invoice number and contact your salesman directly, or contact us through our phone system for express support.

Any other requests for instructions will be passed over.

Subsequent Messages

When responding back and forth with us, keep our previous conversations intact. A few bytes of text are cheap yet informative.

Your Email Provider

If you are mailing from an account that may have been implicated as a source of spam, it may not make it to us. If you've not heard from us in a few short days, you may wish to resend from an alternate account.

Note that our replies occasionally bounce back from certain mail services or those with full mailboxes. Hotmail, AOL and a few others have been problematic in some instances.

Not A Jeep?

Information requests for vehicles other than Jeeps are prioritized on our knowlege of them. Where our focus is so heavily on Jeeps, we will probably not have any helpful information about swaps in other vehicles.

Engine Crank to
Transmission Pilot Bushings

Conversion & Custom Crank Pilot BushingsMany manual transmissions will be married to stock as well as conversion engines, and a custom pilot bushing will be required in many instances.

Predominately, these bushings are bronze alloys are impregnated with oil to arbor the pilot tip of a transmission input shaft. Some less common versions may use greased needle roller bearings (there is no real overall advantage to either style). Pilot bushings provide precise, lubricated alignment while the clutch disc is released. Failure to use the proper pilot bushing can severely damage the transmission. For more details, read our informative Guide to Clutches, Linkages & Bellhousings.

Compiled below are some of our most popular requests for:

  • GM Generation I - III Engines
  • AMC I6 & V8 Engines
  • Ford Windsor Engines

For a bushing not listed, contact us. For custom or unique applications, let us know the specs and we'll see if we can provide you with a solution.

For GM Gen. I-III Engines, 1955-2000

For GM Gen. III V6 & V8 Engines, 2001-2012+

For Jeep / AMC Engines, 1972-2006

For Ford Small Block Engines
