Pilot bearing question

Getting ready to install Spec stage 3 clutch and FRPP pilot and throwout bearings, Prothane trans mount, and FRPP rear main seal. What type of grease should I use to pack the pilot bearing and remove it hydraulically?

The kits usually come with them. Ask who ever you're getting it from

What I meant was the grease used to remove the old pilot bearing. I've never done it before but I was told to use something like silicone or wheel bearing grease. You're supposed to fill the middle of the bearing to get it airtight and insert something that fits in the hole and hammer it in till it pushes the old bearing out hydraulically.

Idk about that but I've always used a pilot bearing puller tool. Not too expensive and if you do it the other way you have to worry about getting all the grease out so as not to contaminate the clutch disc. And don't pack the new bearing cuz they already come packed and again yoy don't wanna get grease on your clutch parts. You can probably rent the tool from somewhere like autozone. And don't get me wrong - I'm not endorsing autozone! Lol

I've used slam hammers to get mine out but you can pack it with just about any grease and do it hydraulically too. Hell even bar soap packed in real tight works well.

Here's a couple pictures of the pressure plate and disc. There's no material on the pressure plate side of the disc at all.

I hope you are getting a new flywheel or at least getting yours checked and resurfaced lol. That was definitely time for a change...

Flywheel is getting resurfaced and balanced at the least. I'll have them check it and let me know if its still roadworthy as well.

Yeah dude that ended badly, like I said at least you didnt lose a foot, I would recommend just chiseling it out, that's how I had my best luck.
