    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

    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.
