Just looking for conformation that the pilot bearing does in fact get installed in the flywheel.
I just pulled my fm145 that failed due to an inputshaft bearing and there was a pilot bearing in crank shaft and none in the flywheel, flywheel just had that counter bore.
Which is now too large a bore to except a bearing. So I think I need a new flywheel.
Thanks

My credo
Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
On a 1990 2.9L 2WD Ranger with the Mitsu FM132 it was in the flywheel. Can't confirm first-hand, though, for any other years with the 2.9L.

It's definitely in the flywheel. If I recall correctly, a 9/16" socket works great to press or tap it in/out. Check the pics of it here
