PostPosted: Fri Jul 05, 2019 10:23 am    Post subject: A clutch fork in the road Reply with quote

Hi,

I am after any advice on methods to re-assemble a Clutch - specifically how best to get the clutch release fork shaft inserted. The options seem to be

1 - With both needle bearings pre-attched to the shaft
2 - with one needle bearing (the far side) inserted in the casing

My confusion is that for 1, would you not have to press the far side bearng through the opening of the nearside bearing and I don't know if that is easy (same diameter for both bearings?) or whether that would be tricky

Both methods are on a single Rennline thread, but I would like so other sources of information to help me to decide.

The Bently manual says (after mating the gearbox with the engine): "install clutch release fork shaft with new seals into transmission."

So not enough detail.

Can anyone help?

160 people have read your post and so far no-one has replied!

I suggest you post your question the 993 section at Rennlist.com. A search has several threads on this - some recommend dropping the engine...

Engine was out when I did mine and I just cant remember other than it was tricky and with the engine in situ it must be a real pain single handed.

Yeh I also performed this whilst the engine and box were out of the car.

Think I remember it being straight forward, pretty sure I went with option 2.
