I have previously removed steadfast spigot bushes by running a tap to cut a thread then use a bolt to screw in and bottom out in the crank, which in turn forces the spigot out as you continue to turn the bolt. At some point the bush will spin free.

Benny....great idea. Will try that when I get back to it in a few days. So you have experienced these spigot bushes. Any idea why it was in there and the purpose? Thx.

The purpose of the spigot bush (aka pilot bearing) is for the manual transmission shaft to ride in when you push the clutch pedal down

Normally they last the life of the car, but if they need replacing for some reason they are tricky to remove. The two methods I've heard of are cutting/chiseling or hydraulic removal (some grease and a blow from a hammer pops it right out)

DD... I read the Tech Wiki on the pilot bushing which is supposed to be on the end of the crankshaft and typically does not need to be replaced. However my motor has a bushing inside of this pilot bushing. I wonder if the pilot bushing needed to be replaced and the mechanic could not remove it and pressed in another bushing and ground down the drive gear of transmission to make it fit. Once I get the inside bushing removed, then we can see what is going on.
