My motor spun a rod bearing after a new short block went in 7,000 miles, so I pulled my motor yesterday to get a start on that. The throw out bearing was already making noise, so I was planning on doing that and a clutch at the same time. I separated the case from the trans and noticed that there was already a sleeve kit over a (what seems to be) demolished snout.
Can anyone tell me about this throw out bearing and sleeve? It appears to be a TSK kit, but I'm not sure.
People keep telling me to buy a new kit and that kits are made to match the bearing... but I'm not entirely sure that's correct. I've read posts like this about the TSK1 kit
that states they're just Toyota bearings.
Also, I noticed that the clutch fork was just kind of hanging out there. It was not attached to the bearing
or have a pivot like the 6mt does. Is the 'free floating' like this normal?
Any insight is appreciated.
