Replaced the clutch last November. Heard a very subtle noise Sunday that sounded like the pilot or throw-out bearing. Had trans dropped in a couple hours thanks to help with a buddy who was around to help last time I had to drop the trans. A few pics below.
5.5ft long from bellhousing to t-case output . . . sure helps having a truck high enough to crawl under! I can sit up on my *** in the trans tunnel to work on the flywheel and pressure plate, lol. Not bad for a stock height truck.
Throw-out bearing separated:
Needles fell out instantly. Was dry as a bone and mild heat marks!
South Bend Kevlar Pilot Bushing installed.
Picking up the Ford throw out tomorrow morning, $200 flippin dollars, what a joke. Don`t have much of a choice though.
Got my muffler delete pipe in in while doing the trans work too thanks to my buddy. Fired it up quickly and wow, a lot louder and more whistle, love it. Will get a video of it in the next day or so.
Will update this with more pics and progress.
