Bob, I don't recall seeing "dark spots" on the bushings -- several of which I've replaced before -- but maybe I just didn't pay attention to them.  I changed the bushing in my BJ8 about 1-1/2 years ago (from Moss) and put it in hot engine oil and let it cool in the oil for 24 hours before installation.  It couldn't hurt to do that, anyway.

I'm getting ready to do an engine rebuild and replace the clutch on my BJ8.  Bought a new pilot/spigot bush from Moss, but I seem to recall the ones I've seen before had small dark spots that I assumed were from the oil that is impregnated  into the bronze.  The new one appears to be just bronze; are these (still) 'Olilite' bushings?  If so, are they supposed to be soaked in oil before installation?
