throw out bearing issue with luk pressure plate. any suggestions?
I'm getting ready to put the engine back in my truck and I have a new ford t/o bearing to put in. I was having issues with a slight grinding noise prior to the removal of the engine, but the grinding only occured when the clutch pedal was not pushed in. The noise would go away as soon as you pushed slightly on the clutch pedal.
I went to put the new T/O bearing on the transmission and I observed the center plastic section of the bearing had rub marks and was coming apart. It appears the fingers on the pressure plate are a bit too long and are rubbing on that part of the bearing. I put the new throw out bearing up to the pressure plate and observed the plastic section of the bearing on the face of it will rub on the fingers also.
Is this normal on this set up? It's been a year or so since I have worked on cars but I don't remember any throw out bearings being set up like this.
Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
