Help!! I need to find a clutch for my 65 6 banger and am having a heck of time locally.
I would like to replace Plate, Disc, Pilot bearing, and Throwout bearing.
Any sources would be helpful as well as advise on an easy way of getting the pilot bearing out.
Thanks

Try any Mustang parts house. My local autp parts store can get all of that stuff for me very reasonably and quickly.

As far as the pilot bushing goes, there are many methods good and bad. I'd try filling up the hole with grease, then inserting a dowel or rod (even an extra input shaft if you have one) into the pilot bushing hole and drive away. Make sure whatever you stick in there goes in tight, the pilot will come out.

Actually I have found a N.O.S. at a place in New York, and they tell me that it does not chatter like the aftermarket ones.
I also found that Federal -Mogul replaces the pilot bushing with a sealed roller bearing Part# BCA 8016 if anyone is interested.
Thanks for all the replies!!
