its not all the way in then, its hard to get it right, just move it around or take it off and try putting it back in, also make sure nothing is blocking the pilot bearing or nething like that.

Bearing puller or air chisel. I do want to know how you got the manual pilot bearing in without taking the auto one out? Or did you even put it in lol...

It's right behind where the flywheel mounts in that hole. It should stick out like 1/4" or so. Pull that one out, then clean out that hole good. Then put lithium grease in the hole and on the manual pilot bearing, and push it in till it won't go anymore. Then bolt up the flywheel clutch etc and put the tranny back on. Make sure you use lithium grease on all moving parts (not flywheel face or clutch of course)...like the throwout bearing, the fork, the fork pivot, the slave clyinder shaft that pushes the fork.

PS: You can borrow a bearing puller and slide hammer from Autozone or whereever if you don't have one.

Like I said try your local auto parts store they should have one you can borrow. You need a slide hammer and a bearing puller. Do not forget to grease (white lithium grease only) the things I told you when putting it all back together. And make SURE to tighten the flywheel and clutch to spec. I've seen a car with a clutch that exploded. Not a good day in paradise.
