80 CJ7 SR4- input shaft bearing retainer???
OK so my clutch went out and I have been trying to track down the parts to fix it. It has an SBC swap and the clutch looks fine but the clutch release bearing and clutch fork were both toast. I ordered a new fork and bearing-
however the fork and bearing do not quite fit- it had a Jeep bearing and a Chevy throwout arm... I started looking for a release bearing that would fit- and per the Jeep part it is 1.125 shaft diameter and the bearing is 1.375 ID. This seems to be too sloppy on the input shaft. In looking at parts it seems as though my trans is missing the input shaft bearing retainer- there was a small aluminum sleeve on the input shaft but the bad release bearing destroyed it.
Anyone know where I can get an SR4 bearing retainer?? I have not been able to find any online at all.
