    As I remember Chevy made a short and a long throwout bearing. Which one are you using?
     
  3. Is that 1/2" with the clutch release fork just flopping around on the pivot ball or is everything assembled in the vehicle?

    Does anybody know about the two styles of throwout bearings for a four speed muncie?
     
  6. When you push the t/o bearing forward is the t/o arm out of travel room to disengage the clutch? If that's the case you do need a thicker t/o bearing. If there is still travel room then maybe it'll just be a linkage issue.

    Yeah, sounds like you need the longer style throw out bearing. I know I have this kind in my '57 Chevy, and my '62 Chevy C10 as well. Strictly going by "well, it should be..." the longer bearing should be the same as at least up to '66 trucks.
    OR, find yourself a good mom&pop parts store and just ask the guy behind the counter for a long throw out bearing for a Chevy.
    I didn't know which I needed, so my parts guy hooked me up with both and told me to bring back the one I didn't need.

  12. I took a look in the NAPA online catalog for the mid-60's clutch release bearings and find that 1/2 ton trucks have a different p/n than passenger cars. Can't tell from the info given what the dimensional differences are. If memory serves there are also a number of diferent length pivot ball assemblies available. A longer on might serve the need.
