anyone with a bolt together with aluminum cover on the pilot side.do you guys have a brass or steel bushing on the pilot or is it all aluminum...it appears the all aluminum are seizing up in the back of the crank and galling?
Bronze is the best solution in high load applications. The aluminum does seem to gall as bad as steel.
is anti sieze an option,i know it is messy
honesty is the best policy,insanity is a better deffense

Last bolt together had a thread on steel pilot and no issues with galling.
New one I just ordered has a bolt on bronze pilot which is what most companies are going to these days.
looks like I have to send mine back.they are talking a bronze bushing as hutch stated.sure wish they did this the first time
We updated to using bolt on bronze pilots.
