Hey guys, I am in need of the pilot bushing to put a small pilot convertor into a BBF. The pilot on the convertor (that I got from a forum member, who says he had it in a similar setup. HA!) I have is too short to reach the recessed portion of the crankshaft. Help ME!!:eek:

Ford made 2 different sized snouts, a large 1.850" FE (390/428) and early 429/460 style and the small 1.375" 351M/400 and 429/460. Try contacting some t/converter makers and see if they sell the spacers. I bought a converter a long time ago that had one welded on. I think it was G.E.R. Trans.

I have already contacted ATI (found their name in a search here, but they said they didn't have them because they were bad to break). TCI, said they didn't have them. When I put the convertor up against the flywheel & align the bolt holes for convertor, you can move the convertor in all directions while holding it tight against the flywheel.
Thanks

Not sure if this is what you are looking for. I bought a 429/460 C-6 converter from a member here that was running a C4 behind it. It had a spline bushing inside the converter which I had no use for because I am running a C6, if that is what you are looking for you can have it.

The GM Turbo style converters have the small snout. My Glide has a Houghs 9" with a adapter. If you can't get one through the converter manufacturers then you'll have to machine one...OR I have a TCI Street Fighter 3,500 stall I'll sell. New, unused.

Thanks everyone, I had no idea this would be such a hard to find item. Just goes to show that every once in a while someone will sell you something that he knows will not work for you or anyone else in the same setup.
Thanks Again Everyone

Is it an early crank (68-69)? That is a different diameter also, only by a small amount. Measure if you can, let me know, I may still have mine.
