The clutch kit I bought from Autozone did not fit correctly or work for me. I ended up having to source a LuK kit, which works like a dream. YMMV

I got mine from advance. What was the cost of the LuK kit? It may be that the pressure plate is to thick. Did autozone take it back?

Yes - they took it back, it's kinda important if they sell you a part that doesn't work with your vehicle

The LuK kit was about $150. Forget the part number, but Napa didn't have it and they had to refer me to a local tranny shop who ordered it and had it to me in 24hrs.

Just got it pulled. Looks like something was wrong with the TO bearing. The bearing retainer cap sleeve is sheared off at the cap like the TO bearing bound up or was to small. Suggestions?

You need a new bearing retainer, and then verify that your parts will work together.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Your original front bearing cap must have been weak for it to shear off like that. I believe the T176 bearing caps are made of cast iron.

Was their any grease or lube on the front bearing cap tube portion for the TO bearing to slide on? Shearing the tube off like that seams as though the TO bearing has seized and the friction generated between the pressure plate and the TO bearing was to much for the bearing cap and sheared it off.

Time for a new one and don't forget to purchase a new seal that is inside the front bearing cap plus a new gasket.

Quadratec has them: http://www.quadratec.com/products/52129_01.htm

Yeah, I put some grease on it. This is the first time I have rebuilt a clutch and I guess I'm destined to learn the hard way. I should have checked the fit of the TO bearing on the sleeve before we put it together. We were wondering why it was so difficult to push in. I guess we know now. The old TO bearing slides perfect on the sleeve. The new one binds up like it is to small. And the overall diameter of the bearing (that sits on the spring release on the pressure plate) is smaller than the old one. Now I need to get parts ASAP to get it fixed for family vacation.

I guess the big question is, should I just take back the advance kit and go with a LUK kit or attempt to replace the bearing retainer cap and see if the advance kit will work with the new cap?
