throwout bearing
« on: January 22, 2018, 10:08:40 PM »
probably having to pull everything to replace ticking TO bearing..anyways JK has 48K on it...only want to pull it once ..think I should do clutch / pilot bearing all at the same time? or just TO bearing if everything else seems ok?

whats everyone else doing these days when this happens?

Always do clutch, pressure late and bearing as a set

If you are taking it that far apart - replace EVERYTHING you can while it's opened up!  Clutch, Pressure Plate, new Pressure Plate bolts, Throw out bearing, Pilot Bearing, etc...  You only want to open it up once  :wink:

Cheap insurance.   At a minimum hit them with a pitch gauge to make sure they are not streched

Technically speaking any bolt with a torque spec shouldn’t be reused

I have never changed a pressure plate bolt in my life.

I got 200K on my factory clutch in the beetle, with 50k on the ticker I'd only do the TO bearing.  The clutch is just breaking in.

in the younger years and hot rod cars we would often see the head of the bolt off center.  we always did new bolts.    that was after lots of hole shots

Simply no reason not to replace the bolts while you have it apart with new grade 8 (or grade 10.9 or 12.9 if they are communist anti american hardware  :rotflmao: )

until you know and understand bolt fatigue and failure a bolt is a bolt.
