For use with Ford / Borg Warner T5 Gearbox - Radius / Rounded Faced Thrust Bearing
CNC machined alloy mounting block with spacers, seals bolts etc
This kit utilises a concentric release bearing and aluminium boss, with modification to the standard gearbox nose. The kit comes completed with all fixings required to convert your existing T5 gearbox. The hydraulic clutch pipe is routed through the original release lever cutout in the bellhousing
The slave cylinder and bearing on this unit work in a different way to a manual installation in that the release bearing is in constant light contact with the clutch diaphragm fingers. This is achieved by an internal spring within the thrust bearing. There is no need to be concerned that the release bearing is in contact with the diaphragm at all times.
Please note that he slave cylinder must be in a partially compressed form when installed. Fitment of the slave cylinder in the extended state will result in the bearing being forced off the end of the inner shaft when the clutch is depressed. When used in a custom installation please check the actuation of the slave cylinder over the entire clutch pedal stroke.
Please note: It is necessary to shorten the original gearbox thrust bearing tube and substitute the original bolts for the longer ones supplied.
See additional image for a drawing of how to achieve this. There is no need to disturb the front gearbox bearing.
When using a shallower clutch cover the release bearing may need spacing forward in order to achieve full clutch depression
