issues with installing throwout bearing

I just started messing with my 1984 chevy c20 agin and i was installing the new throwout bearing on the sm465 trans (4 speed granny) and i noticed for one the clutch plates are in the way and to close to fork to get it on or whatever the things that sit rite behind clutch forks arm are called i think its clutch. Anyways so i looked down in bell housing and saw a circular thing like a bearing ring and its sorta stuck under a clutch plate or something and i cant get it out anyways if i un bolt the bell housing case from motor will the clutch plates and all the other crap come off with it or will it all stay in place where it is at and i have no issues.
Also i have 2 others threads involving installing this ********** trans but i need help fast and wasnt getting much and i only have sat-sun every week to do this.

Not super sure what your asking, but, the ones I have done the bearing floats about half an inch away from the metal fingers you see. When you step on the clutch ( you push the fork with the bearing slipped into the fork ) the whole bearing moves up, with the fork, and pushes the metal fingers in.

Forgive me if I am blowing hot air. Hope that helps.

Sad to say, but you cannot do it in place. Most bell housings will come off
easy. Unless it has bolts hid behind the flywheel. I think your safe there.

But, bell housing means dropping the tranny with it.

Here's a real time video of a clutch change on a 4 wheel drive truck. If your truck is 2 wheel drive just ignore the transfer case removal and wait for the trans and clutch part.

I already have the transmission out of the truck, I found parts of the old throwout bearing in the bell housing so thats why i want to take it off to get all the BB's that came out, out of bell case. Now all im needing to know is this.
I un bolt all the bolts going around the top edges of my bell housing then i remove the cables going to the arm that goes inside the side of bell housing then the bell housing will come rite off correct? Also the clutch stuff and everything else that was inside of bell housing will all stay in place and after i clean out bell housing i just re install the bolts and that arm and im done with that rite?
