dreamability is cool... so far.
After market flywheel with a real pilot bearing

So as you may know our cars have just the little metal shim/sleeve (pilot bushing) in the flywheel in place of a "pilot bearing".
I picked up a flywheel and it came with a pilot bearing so I'm a little concerned.
The flywheels specs are good, right amount of teeth and measurements. It is a lighter chromemoly flywheel BTW.
So I'm just asking if that's normal on some aftermarket flywheels to have a pilot bearing in place of the metal pilot bushing?
Thanks

Yes, both of my Fidanzas had true pilot bearings, as well.

Yep. My Fidanza had a bearing. Completely normal.

Awesome. Thanks for taking the time to give me some reassurance. I figured but just wanted to be certain. Hopefully I'll get around to posting my coupe project in members rides soon.
Thanks again.

Please do. Did you buy that car recently, or have you had it a while? I just moved back to Houston from Denton, and if I had seen that coupe for sale when I was there, it would be in my garage right now.

I will get it added as soon as time permits or I take a break on the project.
Well I'm glad you didn't see it and its in my garage, lol. Yeah I bought it Oct. 2017. It sat in the driveway until I think June, then I put it in the garage. I try and work on it at least a couple hours a day during the week and all day Saturdays. It started as just a Koni suspension upgrade and some wheels and turned in to me doing the whole car. Currently engines out so I can do the bay,(ABS delete, wire tuck, & cleaning). Members Ride coming soon.
Thanks again.

I'm the king (except maybe steelbluesleeper) of having an engine out of the car and stored in a garage. Just don't lose interest in it!
