1990 Dodge Dakota Q&A

1990 Dodge Dakota Question: pilot bearing seal

i am changing my motor in my dakota but the only used motor i could find was in an a truck that was automatic and i was wondering if anyone knew how to get the pilot bearing seal out? not the pilot bushing -
Answer 1
Don't you need to install a pilot bearing/bushing into the crankshaft of the auto-trans engine, you just need to install a new bearing or bushing into the crank then bolt the flywheel on, but make sure the bearing or bushing fits the input shaft of the transmission before installation -
Answer 2
I was just wondering where you found a Dakota 2.5 engine coupled to an automatic transmission. I was unaware of that combination ever being available. -
