How's this for perplexing??

Every KA24e auto/manual swap thread I have read to date has referenced an 'auto pilot bushing' located where the pilot bearing is supposed to be installed for any manual transmission, at the back end of the crankshaft. I have researched for hours to see what this piece looked like and how it is to be removed. Most forums said you need a bearing puller.

Well...

What's to pull???? It's bare in there!!

Most threads I read referred to this...(see item on right)


Guess what!! I don't have one of those!! So I sat at the computer stumped for hours as to how I was going to remove something I did not see. Well a light went off over my head last night...it was dim but the wife claims she saw it for a moment. When I removed the flex plate last year there were two adapter plates that came off with it. One was on the outside of the flexplate and came off with the plate (see pic below on left), the other slid off the end of the crankshaft by hand and has what looks to be the bushing as part of it (see pic below on right).

BINGO!!!


Nissan must have changed design after it discontinued offering the 240SX with the KA24E motor in 1990. My engine was built in late 1990. So there's nothing to press out, it changed to an adapter sleeve. Just an FYI for anyone doing the swap.

Got my adaptors off the bcc mill and my rotors in the mail. Just need this snow to hold off so I can get them on, oh and unfortunately I am driving her again. But half way through a lug swap for these new wheels

Replaced my busted air intake temperature sensor and like that, no more check engine light. I also got my exhaust done today. Tried to get pictures while it was on the hoist but did not. Oh well.
