Subject: FTE Perf - Clutch Release Lever "Bearing"

Hi everybody.

I have a question about the clutch release "Bearing" s shown the 1979 Ford
Light Truck "Body, Chassis, & Electrical" Manual.

This bearing "lives" between the forks of the clutch release lever. Mine
has some impression on it and possibly some light scoring. (It is a seal
bearing and going by feel I think it has this.)

Question # 1. Is this bearing still available from Ford, and/or are there
replacement aftermarket ones available? Are there "heavier duty" ones
available? (I like "Heavy Duty"! Grunt, grunt.)

Question # 2. I also need to replace the "rubber boot" which goes around
the release lever where it enters the bell housing. Same goes for it.
(Available?) (Note it could be reused but it does have a small rip in it.)
The manual calls it a "shield".

Any help on this would be appreciated!


Thanks,

"Paul"

hi, i'm about to make a conversion on my ranger from a 4cyl to a 351 (5.8L)
v8. i know i'm going to need to do alot of replaceing, so i'm going part by
part looking for the best equipment for the most reasonable price.. so, to
keep this truck as a 5spd manual, what clutch would you guys recommend? so

one from centreforce..

AutoKrafters is a good source for a lot of '79 parts.

I'd be curious as to whether or not that trans will handle the increased
torque of a 351W without going south real quick. It's the same as the Mazda
and has been known to have longevity problems even with the 4cyl. I don't
want to rain on your parade but would hate to see you experience problems
from a weak link in the conversion.
