Another mixed up mess.
1. It was all working perfect, all fresh build, all new parts with about 1,500 miles on them.
Problem: started grinding going into FORTH gear. This is the only thing wrong. (everything you read says brass ring is jacked, it's not)
longer of the 2 "fixed" GM pivot ball
New stock replacement fork
614018 Precision Clutch Release Bearing <- what I think the problem is (and if it is why did it go bad so quickly?)
I have LOTS of pics I'm just not sure what is relevant. I read about this for hours before installing it all and it DID work great for 2 years of limited use. I spent most of the day today reading posts were JodysTransmissions's has some wicked great input. Now I'm not sure if I need the McLeod Throwout Bearings 16505 or the adjustable pivot ball or both or none. Only because I haven't torn it all back down and measured.
OKAY, if you are still with me...the 614018 Precision Clutch Release Bearing is NOT centered and HAS side to side deflection. Although it spins great, the fact that I can move the outer race/circle, whatever is freaking me out.
Idea's, what other information is relevant? P.S. I guess I'm just looking for "You don't have 4.75 and this is ruining the throw-out bearing" ...??
If you donít push the limits how are you going to find the weak spots?
