i went to the hardware store and got a brass bushing and made my own bushing, its longer then the original so it covers every bit of the end of the input shaft which pretty much eliminates the problem. so no more issue there
New problem, i went to put the pressure plate onto the flywheel and it wont tighten up. the pressure plate is just so far away fromn the flywheel, i think its because i had to machine so much off of the flywheel because it was in such bad shape. so theres no way to get this pressure plate to sit down against the flywheel. i have tried everything, i have a bolt broken off in the flywheel now. I dont know what to do at this point, do i need a new flywheel?
