frown Throw out bearing. HELP!!!!!!

I have got my clutch adjusted so that there is only enough travel to just get it into gear, however, the throw out bearing is still spinning when the clutch is fully released???? Is this normal?? The clutch comes no where near slipping or anything.

Re: Throw out bearing. HELP!!!!!!

What I am trying to say, is the throwout bearing supposed to be always in contact with the diaphram springs???? Also, I had a look at the clutch pedal and found that there is actually a light spring pulling the clutch pedal toward the floor. This would almost mean that the bearing is supposed to touch the diaphram springs all the time??

Re: Throw out bearing. HELP!!!!!!

Grant,

The throwout bearing and clutch setup is designed to keep the bearing in light contact with the fingers. Clutch pedal travel is determined by adjusting so the pedal is like 14cm or so from the floor. This lets you have enough throwout on the fingers to disengage correctly, but not too much, and also leaving no freeplay between the bearing and the fingers.

Re: Throw out bearing. HELP!!!!!!

Thanks so much for that!
My throw out bearing has had it, and I thought it must have been because it was in contact with the fingers all the time. Obviously just wear and tear and k's

blueoval,

If you adjust to the 14cm travel, then it should be pretty close to the height of the brake pedal anyhow.

And say goodbye to your PP, pedal box, etc. Ignore the 140mm thing and adjust it so it engages about 1-1.5" off the floor.
