Throw out bearing Rattle

Postby Brando4151 » Fri Sep 23, 2016 8:22 am

Hello all,
I just replaced the clutch in my 154 and for the life of me I could not get the new throw out bearing I bought as well onto the drive shaft. I didn't have any reason to believe the old one was bad so I figured I would save the new one for later. Well I put it all back together and the old throw out bearing seems to work fine but is a little loose on the drive shaft so it rattles a bit. Can anyone see any problem with this? Shouldn't it just wear it self out or am I looking at possibly ruining another part?

A loose fitting throw out bearing will continue to rattle worse and worse as it wears more. But it also will wear down the drive shaft so that even a new throw out bearing will be so loose it will rattle too. I just had to replace a drive shaft like that.
But why did the new throw out bearing not fit on the shaft? It should slide onto the shaft fairly easily. You may need to check the diameter of the drive shaft to make sure a prior owner didn't replace it or have it built up larger than standard. At some point you will have to replace the throw out bearing with a new one so this problem needs to be resolved.

Thanks for the reply Charlie. I thought it was odd as well that it would not fit. I'm not sure what the issue is. I'll get it apart again here in a few weeks before the snow comes and see if I can't figure it out. I should have taken my time in the first place to resolve the problem but I did not think it was that loose!

Here's another suggestion: HamiltonBobsCubs is a great source not only for parts but for information. They sell a new drive shaft and should be able to tell you what the diameter of a new shaft should be in case you want to check yours for being standard. They are great people to deal with and I recommend them highly.

I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
