I found this to give me some trouble the last time that I did tranny work.
The cheap clutch alignment tools do not seat all of the way into the hole in
the crank where the pilot bearing would go if our cars had a pilot bearing.
I had to take my cheapie tool, grind the angled section at its nose down to
a cylinder that then "steps up" instead of angling up to the splined
section.  My tranny was a lot easier to install after that.
