Can you post a pic of the damage? Unless it is extreme, a properly oiled bronze bushing should be okay untill you can do it right. Smooth any rough protrusions w/emery cloth, as to prevent the pilot tearing up the new bushing. When the pilot is damaged, you HAVE to use a bushing, or you will destroy the new bearing VERY quickly, and cause more damage to the pilot. Take the bushing, seal one end w/your thumb, and fill the bushing with clean motor oil. Then, press your other thumb on the top and squeeze together. When the oil is seeping through the sides of the bushing, you are done, and ready to install.
