zcacogpTom, Don't mistake the first rule of sales; the cost of the item for the supplier to buy has no bearing on the price they sell it at; that is determined solely by what someone is willing to pay .... I'm going to go out on a limb and say I probably wouldn't go with the short-shift kits. Stay away from the paint. It takes time, costs money and adds weight. And no-one will see it underneath the car. Oli.

Tommys86Hi Steve - I'm probably going to pass on the mount thanks - the extra budget been blown on the new flywheel and try the goo trick. I've managed to get the flywheel off as my new bits have arrived today. Concern about removing the pilot bearing though - the slide hammer I have is too big to get it square to the crank palm - before I go down the route of getting it modified/shorten does anyone else have a better technique for removing? Bearing feels ok but guess whilst I'm here I should. Oh speaking of mods - I'm going to get my housing "notched", seen a few online which are the two sensor setups so think my proposal is fine as I want a bit more wriggle room on the 1 sensor setup. Red lines mark the basic cuts to enable me to slide the housing on with sensor fitted - think this is the normal approach. Orange lines is the additional wriggle room - I want create clearance for the dowel fitting (blue arrow) in order to remove the sensor whilst the housing is in place - why? Mainly because my sensor is fused to the bracket, plus if the sensor is damaged or faulty in future is an easier swap out - any concerns or anyone had similar thoughts? Cheers Tom
PAUL RUDDYI forgot to add you need to use a large socket as a spacer to pull the bearing into, I have 3 photos that show the "tool" in action but I'm rubbish at posting photos, I can email them to someone if they would post them on here ?
blade7Never tried it, but supposedly filling the pilot bearing with grease and then hammering in a close fitting bar forces out the bearing. Google it.
