Yours came with bolts? All I got was springs.:confused:

Yeah, whats up with that!? I recently found out that the 6 bolts can become fatigued and break near the head! :eek: Read more here...


oops, already posted it...:rolleyes:

Yeah, I read that Wade.;)

Yeah, this package came with washers and bolts. Phat is working on getting me the right ones. I put the old springs back in for now and snapped the head off one of the bolts, imagine that. So I went and got 6 new bolts. Clutch still slips in 5th. Not a huge problem if I take it easy, but we'll see what happens when I get the right springs.

Finally got the right springs, at least I hope so. Going to put them in this weekend. Also got the release bearing. Any tips on putting in the new bearing/taking out the old one?

clutch release
Here is the mechanism disassembled from right to left. The bearings are on the triangle plate.

Not the ball bearings. The clutch release bearing.

Put the springs in last night. Took it for a ride this morning and no more slippage! Thanks for all your help again.
