Sam this bearing is designed for factory clutches and has 0.688" max stroke.

The disc does have a marcel spring. Got it on the retraction, I tested it with air and it has no internal self-retraction spring.

OK, but what happens to the fluid "stack" as the bearing recedes? It has to go somewhere and if the pedal is "stoppered" with a mechanical limiter (like mine will be) it will have nowhere to go. If the pedal is untethered, won't it continue to rise further off the floor and come out alignment with the brake pedal?
