Thread: [IRS GEARBOX] Clutch Release Bearing & Guide Sleeve - HELP!

    Yes I suppose using a spacer would make that part irrelivant.
    Im just letting people know that you can use either fork, I have had both types on my swing axle gearbox.
    The older thrust bearing has the problem of falling off the forks, those clips have a habbit of coming off, thats why the later type is integral.
    But if I was in your shoes I would use the older style clutch simply because you have half of it already.

    I'll use the old one. Hopefully bushboy's that he's offered me. I've noticed that his older style release bearing comes with heavy duty clips (as does an offering from Machine 7), which must be available due to stories of the other ones coming off.

    Thanks all who have contributed to this issue and sorry it has been so boring. Maybe it will help others one day.

    Giles.

    Not sure if its any help but I happen to have pictures of the old and new clutch bits so I'll post them here:

    Old type clutch fitted:


    Old type release bearing:


    Where the pin clip things go (mine had dropped off and was lying in the bellhousing)


    New style clutch fitted:



    I don't have a pic of the new release bearing fitted, but it went on the old forks in the same way.
