Re: Is changing t-out bearing a two person job?
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I recently mentioned this on another thread, but I CANNOT COUNT the number of T.O. Brg jobs I have done on everything from heavy equipment to dinky cars, and have had to MODIFY linkage to really get things like I wanted them to be. Wear, bending, bad factory design, and lack of lubrication can all cause the T.O. brg to touch and continue to spin when it should be just sitting there. NEVER assume the linkage is right. Check and provide for good clearance yourself, even if it means changing portions of the linkage, adding springs, beefing up links, increasing throw, the list goes on.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Clutches have not changes since the early thirties and even late twenties, except that now we have superior friction material. The basic operation of the clutch pressure plate is the same. If the T.O. brg is not holding up, THERE IS A LINKAGE PROBLEM.....[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
