Throw Out Bearing

Hey Guys,

In setting up my new Muncie and clutch set up in my 69 Camaro I was wondering. When I purchase a new throwout bearing are they all the same? Or is one brand better than the others? Thanks

Throwout bearing


As far as a throwout bearing , I have just replaced my clutch and throwout bearing in my street rod where I am using a Muncie 4 speed , I bought mine along with the clutch from Hays . The one I took out was from a parts supplier 20 years before and it was still working fine when I did the change , it was made in the good old U.S.A. Most of all auto parts are made overseas anymore so can't say much for the quality when you buy at your parts store in any town or city in America these days.

You might run into a couple of different lengths on the throwout bearings if you're using a stock clutch. Stock diaphragm-type pressure plates had flat fingers pointing toward the center. The fingers could be straight, or they could be bent backward (as it sits in the car). The ones with flat fingers used a longer T/O bearing than the ones with bent fingers.
