And that was the point I was trying to make about the pilot bushing not doing much work at all a majority of the time especially when the vehicle is under way. But there is slight work being done by the bushing when the engine is running and the clutch is disengaged, it is keeping the input shaft and clutch plate properly aligned when the pressure plate is not holding every thing in place. Remember, the crank shaft and pilot bearing continue to spin whether the input shaft is turning or not.
With the Portable circular saw there is a similar load but the real load is so very close to the armature gear and gear bearing that the end cap bearing basically only has to hold the armature in alignment. The bearing on the other end of the armature is handling 99% of the load.
