85 cj amc 304/ t5 what clutch do i use? pilot bearing?

i was going to go ahead and order a clutch being my is getting to to the end its life. i just wanted to make sure, but are all t-5's a 10 spline input? and what pilot bearing/bushing do i use? im assuming that the bushing/bearing for a 258 will not work with the 304 crank.

can anyone point me in a direction at least as far as the pilot bearing? i know i saw a thread on here that went into it but i cant seem to find it in any of my searches. and id really prefer to be able to have everything to change the clutch rather than pull everything just to find out what pilot bearing/bushing is in there

1 1/8" - 10 spline for the clutch disc.
Pilot bearing will depend on the year of your 304

The 258's T5 uses a pilot bushing, I think the 304 also uses one. The ID code for the 304 should be on a plate on the passenger side valve cover. If there are two cranks, I would just buy both bushings or bearings and return one.

There also should be an oil wick in behind the pilot bushing that needs to be pulled out and re-oiled.
