Hudson T5 progress...

Found sometime last night to machine the pilot bearing for the S-10 T5 Conversion on the 262 Hudson engine.  The original pilot bearing was in fact an actual roller bearing.  The ID was fairly small and I didn't want to have to modify the input shaft of the T5, so a new plain bearing style was made out of bearing bronze.

Because this engine uses a wet clutch, it is important to add a small amount of RTV sealant on the flywheel mounting face.
