Ya, they can be a pain in the ass I vaguely remember rounding one off years ago when attempting to swap the engine or maybe I dreamedit who knows. Either way AMC used a goofy ass 6 pointed head like a reverse torx for some reason. Stupid assholes.

Did a little research back at home and figured out why my pilot bushing wouldn't fit. Since my 360 came out of a Wagoneer with an automatic it has a small sleeve installed in the rear of the crank. I'll try to remember to get a pic tomorrow. There are two different sizes depending on whether the vehicle was equipped with a Turbo 400 or a 727 tranny.

It looks like a freeze plug so I should have it mangled up nicely by the time it comes out.
