Pilot Bearing / Solid or ballbearing type"whats best to use"

Hi Guys, I am replacing a clutch anyway I removed the pilot Bearing
from the crank shaft but notice that its of a solid type as opposed to the new
Timken one I purchased, so my question is which one is better.

1 Timken ball bearing type
2 Original Solid Type "Non bearing type"

I could see the bearing type possibly causing a problem due to moving
parts, but the solid one has no moving parts so I am leaning to it instead.

Both are the same size.. I attach a pic so you can see what I mean.

btw the hack marks on the Original was before I got a bearing puller which is
a real handy tool for this type of job !

Thanks for your time.
