Default Clutch help again????

I have been having a problem with an aftermerket clutch and a slave from saturn. I recently called a bought another clutch and noticed that the disc is 8.5 inches and my original is 8.25 inches. Im having a problem of the pedal needing to be pushed to the floor to disengage , coiuld that be my problem. the pressue plate lines up but must also be a little bigger than my original. maybe the disc is hanging up and not pulling away???? any suggestions

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I also need help on one more thing. The bearing has a sleeve in it and like the original one , is offset a little. Does the bearing have to go in a certain way so the sleeve points a certain way or no????thanks

The release bearing?

It only goes one way into the clutch fork. If it was in the wrong way I think that you would be getting clutch release to soon as you push the pedal as the bearing would be higher. The disc is in the right way. The side marked flywheel facing the flywheel?

If ssicarman is right, and you are enquiring about the clutch release bearing, below are pics of mine, when I recently disassembled my transaxle...

Clutch release fork and bearing
Clutch release fork and bearing, removed
Clutch release fork and bearing, back side, plus retainer clip

Hope this helps.

Default Re: Clutch help again????

the disc is in the right way and the bearing by the pics is in the right way but my aftermarket clutch disc is 1/4 larger than the original and my clutch is not making any noise but doesnt disengage until the pedal is on the floor and it engages as soon as it comes a hair of the floor. I also put in a new slve from Saturn thinking I lost pressure but still the same, I called saturn and they said they have never seen a defective slave. i think I have a defective pressure plate or just a defective clutch. i work for a toyota dealership in parts and I had 2 different brand clutches delivered and the discs are both 1/4 inch larger. i think this may be my prob.

Actually, the larger clutch and disc are standard replacement parts and normally will swap into the earlier S-series cars. However, there IS a TSB about mating these with the earlier flywheels...in some cases, the clutch disc hub/springs may interfere with the recess lip in the flywheel. This requires having a .250" 45-degree bevel machined around the perimeter of the flywheel. I've seen the bevel machined into the later flywheels as OEM, although in both my '95 SW2 and my son's '94 SL2, we were able to run the later clutch without modification to the flywheel, aside from just having them resurfaced.

The larger disc diameter should not cause any release or engagement problems unless the fit of it is interferring with the outside of the pressure plate. Not likely to happen. When you say clutch slave you mean the entire clutch hydralic system yes? Clutch master and lines and slave all together as a one piece unit right?
