    I searching for information on flywheel Shims I came across this excellent video by Summit Racing. It didn't discuss the shim, but was quite informative anyway.

    Thanks Eric, I did find the video interesting. The part of the discussion regarding the pilot bushing and pilot bearing caught my attention. Their suggestion was to upgrade to the pilot bearing. Im not comfortable with the pilot bearing. The bushing has a long tried and true tested history. My concern with the pilot bearing was that the heat from the crankshaft may dry out the grease in the bearing over time. I did consider the pilot bearing when I swapped in a 5 speed in my 240Z. But, I decided to go with the bushing at the time and it has worked flawlessly for me. Thanks for sharing the video with us.
