Author Topic:   Tilton Triple Disc Clutch - What Throw Out Bearing?
posted April 21, 2003 09:42 AM
Here's the deal -

I've got a Tilton triple disc clutch, an explosion proof bellhousing, block protector plate and rear motor mounts. I put a mechanical throwout bearing in that was supposedly for this application (its longer than a stock unit) and is was still too short to reach the clutch. When I pull the clutch fork back, it hits the bell housing befor it can disengage the clutch. What have I done wrong?

Will a hydraulic throw out bearing remedy this? I am leaning toward using a Quartermaster throw out bearing. With the trouble the mechanical bearing is giving me, I'm really thinking that there's too many moving parts in the slave cylinder/clutch fork/throw out bearing assembly.

Any thoughts?

by using the rear mounts and block-plate you are pushing your tranny pretty far from the engine. .... what sort of pilot bushing (style/installation spec) are you using?

I don't want to start a debate about the merits of block-plates (I've never run one), but it may preclude use of a stock type bearing.

The QM bearing hydraulic is a great choice(nice copy of the coleman unit) and should work fine with the block-plate and/or rear mounts.
