Question help with 5speed and auto swap - hole on crankshaft

hey guys need some help,

im swaping a 3 speed auto for a 5 speed on my ea. with another blokes ea. he wants an auto and i want a 5speed so its perfect but theres one thing im having trouble with. i have taken both engines out and both tranmissions off but on the engine (crankshaft) with the 5speed the hole is smaller than the one on the automatic engine. is there a way to get the peice that is in the 5speed hole on the engine out so i can get the torque converter from the auto on the engine that had the manual.

thanks for your help in advance,

That would be the thrust bearing, get a slide hammer with a little hook and yank it out, you will probably need to buy a new one but they dont cost much though.

Isnt it the spigot bearing hes talking about? A friend of mine fills the hole with grease and then uses a peice from his socket set to put in the hole. Then gives it a belt and the grease pushes the bearing out. Have to do it a few times. Dont forget to put one in your engine otherwise your input shaft will last about 5 minutes.
