  • Clutch Release Bearing

    We are restoring a 64 259 V8 Standard Transmission with overdrive. We ordered 1550534 clutch throwout bearing from SASCO. We received part # 1544819 instead. It looks to be the same except it has a small tube extending from the bearing.

    Can this be installed with the tube attached? Can the tube be cut off as there is nothing to connect it to. The parts books said it's for a taxi or police car.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Steve

    That's a HD bearing that can be greased after it's installed if you add a hose. You can just leave it, or run the hose and grease it every 30,000 miles or so.

      I just put a rubber vaccum hose cap on mine :





      Make sure you get the clip on correct.
