    hi all,

    can anyone confirm if your converting a 4ac auto to manual it needs a spigot bearing in the crank.
    very pissed off, just assembled me gear and dropped it in the car with the manual gearbox on and people have been saying
    on the net you need a spigot bearing, It was already rwd I didnt think it needed a spigot bearing?

    thanks

    Yes, you should run a spigot bearing. That being said I ran one of my Ke70's for about thousand k's without until I overcame my laziness..

    Should take stuff all time to pull out a T50 even on the ground.
