    Default spigot bush

    hi

    After completing conversion from aussie 4 speed to celica 5 speed on 202 6 cylinder.
    I have just realized that I completely forgot to check the spigot bush.

    Are they different in size and is it prudent for me to pull apart my work and replace?

    Cheers

    ( annoyed with oneself)

    I'm pretty sure that the Toyota input shaft requires a spigot bush with a smaller ID than the Holden box (i.e. the end of the input shaft is smaller), and depending on what bell housing you used the bush may need to stick out of the crank a little further. Time to pull it apart again I'm afraid...

    Yep pull apart again, or you will stuff the front bearing in the box if the front of the input shaft isnt supported by the spigot bearing.

    Clutch plate will run off center causing a wobble of the input shaft as well

    Celica box behind a Holden 6 (or V8) requires a bush with a much smaller ID...well the one I fitted did

    take the Holden bush and celica box to a machine shop and get them to do a custom bronze bush (which i did)
    also maybe check Dellow and CRS ....they may make them these days

    my fears have been realized. It was just a bastard to get in with the gearbox mount and x member. Oh well, Practice makes perfect I imagine.
    just some measurements will tell me whether the bush will need to be proud from the flywheel aye? or remount without clutch/pressure plate in place.

    thanks for the help.

    pulled it out today. found much to my horror that the previous owner of the gearbox had created a sleeve on input shaft so my work today was all for piece of mind. It fitted the bush like a glove.
