I am all ready to install rebuilt t-176 dana 300 clutch pp and have new [ilot bushing but I cant shake the sizing issue the pilot shaft measures .590 and I got my first pilot bushing from novak and the ID is .600 I called them and they said this is correct I must have a oddball shaft. (suggesting maybe .6 is too big?) "I do not" after looking .59 IS the size I should have for a pilot shaft t-176.
So I ordered another PB from 4wd hardware no size given in description but it was for my application 258 t-176 confirmed when ordered.
I get this one and it again measures .600 id?
I see on advanced adapters site they list a pb with a .590 id? but..... surley it cant be .590 id as that would be too close and heat up. I havent called em yet as I am sure they are closed today and I'm ready to light this candle!
the T-150 I pulled that has at least 150,000 miles on it has .008 clearance and I will be starting with .010 I have looked for better than 2 weeks and cant find but only one mention of tolerance and it was " it should fit with a little play"
any thoughts or opinions would be great. But I'm inclined to stab the tranny tomorrow.
 
I am inclined to encourage you to stab it!! Be sure to put a dab of wheel bearing grease in the bushing.
