Throwout bearing

We just put in a new clutch and pressure plate on a 1988 Sami and short of tying the lever down, I can't figure out how to get the transmission put back in without causing the throwout bearing to come off the linkage. Seems that the retaining part of the bearing is a little under designed.

Does anyone know how to keep it in place short of wiring it in?

Re: Throwout bearing

Thanks.
Getting it in is another story. We managed to get it in, but then couldn't get the shifter to work and I had the feeling the bearing detached from the linkage. No way to tell until it's all buttoned up. Now we will have to back it out about 4 inches to reattach the fork.

I also don't understand why I can't shift with engine off and everything static.

Re: Throwout bearing

JUst take your time and try not to bump the arm and knock the bearing off. It is a PITA but will eventually go in. Jim

Re: Throwout bearing

well once we managed to get the thing in mine wouldn't shift either. take out the shifter lever inside the truck and play with it as you reset the ball back in the tranny...that cured my non-shifting problem

Re: Throwout bearing

Hmmm ,on my SJ I always leave the lever off the shaft untill I get it in, then mount the
lever on the shaft. Thats a bit of a pain too, but sounds like less than what your fighting...

Re: Throwout bearing

I just did that , removed the lever , What I also did was mark the lever with a paint stick to the center of the shaft . When you put it back line up the paint line and you should be fine .
