Ok who can tell us which throw out bearing to use? One is same as the one that was on it (on left). The other on right was what RDavis told me to use. But it seems a lot smaller but the face seems a lot more rugged. Does it matter about the "depth" of them?

I've never seen the right version before.

The piston rod will come out a little bit more.
And causing the shorter slideway it may be twisting a little bit more on the tube?
You always should use a HD lever.
Left version is home made. The right version is what you can buy.

Always a good idea to get a non-plastic throwout bearing housing as well..

I like the Megasquirt-V8 ones. They also do HD forks. http://www.megasquirt-v8.co.uk/diff_offroad.php

the throw out on the right looks like the one that goes with the stumpy r380. If you use the one on the left with the r380 stumpy the clutch will start slipping in a very short period of time. Yes the difference between them is absolutely key.

No wonder they are not going as fast as expected. Though, they have a lot of lubricating fluid on the shelves.

I looked up that e clip, there is one off the selectors and one off of something else. you aren't the first person to have one show up on the drain plug so there are a few threads you can find about it. Not sure about the lt 230 but whatever you do don't use the short throwout bearing unless you are using an r380 stumpy gearbox. the short bellhousing lt77 uses the longer one in your picture. also don't re-use an old t/o bearing unless you like doing jobs twice.

Wow......just wow.... Many thanks to Charles, Mike, Huffy, Clay and Bill for lending a hand ... And in Charles' case a little more. Church on Saturday is a little longer and a little more involved but we got er did. So, the smaller throwout bearing is in place (against late advice), a LT230 from a D2 with 1.2 gearing and the old Tranny from some truck, reconditioned during Tithonus timeframe are all in and roaring. After Jeff managed to set the clutch master ... Fiddlly little bastard it is, we were ready...short test ride, more clutch master adjustment and all was good.

Sure takes some getting used to driving a 1.2 from a 1.4....feels as if I can cruise all day in 5th at 80mph....I mean who needs 5th around town? In 4th at 60 it felt like 5th with the 1.4....will take some getting used to...but the taller seems smoother and quieter. Although anything is quiter than what I was used to....obviously.

Anyway .... Love our NOVA crew who comes through ALWAYS.

Solid stuff! The Dii LT230 should be a Q, so it will likely be quieter to be sure, I noticed a significant difference when I changed Coyotes to one.

Now buy a manual boost controller and we'll adjust the boost and fuel and you'll see even more pulling power to take advantage of that 1.22.
