Hey guys,

I am going to be doing a manual conversion in the coming weeks, (after exams :lol: ) and am chasing all the little bits and pieces at the moment.

I have hit a hurdle with the throwout bearing though, its damn expensive!! The quotes i have range between $70 and $140. Am i able to buy this bearing at a bearing store?

Does anyone have the dimension i'll need to ask for it? I dont have one, so i cant take it in to get them to have a look. I highly doubt that they'll know what one is.

Does anyone know of anywhere cheaper to buy one?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,
Nic

I bought a genuine Ford one for I think $40

Are you sure they're not quoting you for the throwout fork.?

I know the fork and dampener is around $120.

nicco, that sounds about right. I got quoted 60 - 140. I got mine from hightek brakes delivered. I think prices have gone up though for some reason.

brake and clutch places usually have to part a kit to sell the bearing seperately. Hence the high prices.

Buying clutch plates and throw out bearings is becoming a joke. The companies have started increasing the cost prices on these now to push people to buy the full clutch kit rather.

hrmm... i did a bit more ringing around and spoke to a mate in a bearing store, he can do it for me at $60 trade. i reckon i'll have to go with that.

but yeah, its all hideously expensive!

a whole clutch kit is only around $275 anyway :?

thanks for that guys

You should be fitting a new clutch kit IMO (which normally includes TO bearing) - that is unless you already have a new clutch plate and pressure plate to go without the TO bearing.

I installed a new clutch plate and pressure plate as well as a new TO bearing...but it died and now squeals like a mofo :?...cbfed fixing it even though I have a spear TO bearing sitting here. Not a good idea, but it'll come out soon.

to be honest, the conversion will be sent later this week. so i havent actually seen the condition of the clutch yet, i just know its used.

I'd prefer to not have to buy a whole clutch kit though. an extra $300 will definitely break the bank! :lol: but if its no good then i will go down that route.

phong, do you know why your TO bearing died? just curious if there is anything i need to look out for while installing

To be honest I wouldn't have a clue. I've pulled the box out 3 times before and didn't replace the TO bearing and it was all good. Replaced it with a new one and the thing squeals like a mofo. I have found recently though that the box had a thin layer of oil underneath it, so I think a leaking transmission may have caused premature wear of the TO bearing if at all possible. If I remember correctly, the TO bearing wasn't a genuine ford either...got another one that is genuine ford and when I replace it I hope it will last longer
