    That bearing looks familure. Rod

      It reminds me of the multiplate throw out bearing, but this one looks too thick with 2 rows of ball bearings.
      I'll have to look at my multiplate bearing again.

          I had to buy that one from the Aussies. Actually bought 5 of them and would have bought more at their price. Sold it to Jim at cost for helping me sort out things with the rdstr pu. Rod

        Is that the elusive "Muffler Bearing"?

            VOLVO means "It Rolls"---Originally, they were a Ball Bearing Company!

          Throwout Bearing/Pilot Bearing Issue Diagnosis
          by BudP
          Over the years I have had two throwout bearings go on me, one with bad consequences because I tried to drive home rather than call AAA. This Saturday I will be helping an acquaintance diagnosis what he believes is a transmission noise that is getting worse. Below is a diagnostic/remedy process I now follow. Feel free to criticize, amend, etc.:

          front inner wheel bearing
          by fmr187
          got some new wheel bearings (Timken) and when I went to put on the inner it wouldn't go all the way onto the spindle. I took the old one and it wouldn't go all the way on either until I rotated it around on the spindle. Then it slid right on nice. The new one isn't doing this. How tight a fit should there be with the bearing and the spindle? Should I put pressure on the new bearing to get it all the...

          2 Used Generators
          by 1930 Closed Cab PU
          Took two used 2 generators apart.

          #1 - Was the generator on a previous post "Motor Noise", the generator was the source of the noise, and it also varied the amperage output even though the 3rd brush had not been adjusted. This is a early 2 bearing generator. This was a non-refurbed, worked when pulled from car/motor Ebay special. Paid $35 or $50 for it, do not remember. ...

          New Waterpump Roller Bearing Issues...
          by Kevin in NJ
          I was measuring the rollers of the bearings for least wear. It appears the rollers for the waterpump front bearing should be .25" in diameter.

          Some original spiral type bearings had about .002" wear.
          A couple of the solid type bearings were about .001"+ wear.
          A couple were right on .250".
          The older stock new bearins were right on.250"
