Hi all:

Who has the best release (throw-out) bearing for sale? I am not looking for the best price but looking for a bearing that is reliable. My last one failed after 500 miles.

For a 1957 235 6 / SM420 (in a 1952 Chevy 3100)

Thanks


Ron

If I have a smooth New Departure I repack it. I don't trust aftermarket bearings.
If you can find a NOS that would also be good.
I have a post on my blog about repacking bearings.

What Dave said. I just reinstalled my tranny last month. I figured since I had it apart I may as well put in a new TO bearing. Ordered it from my FLAPS and when the counter guy handed it to me I saw CHINA on it. Handed it right back and said "No Thanks". Repacked my old one and will probably pick up an NOS New Departure when I come across one to have for backup.

Hi

Thanks for the info.

Do you have the stock number for the New Departure release bearing for my truck?

Thanks,


Ron
