Straight Six Clutch Bearing

Post by Oaksey » Sat Dec 22, 2018 3:23 pm

Has anyone got a spare clutch release bearing for a straight 6? The one I've got is a different size to the original ones and carriers I have so must be off a Z4.

I could do with it pretty urgently and most places are shut for Christmas now

Cheers

I expect you've already googled for this part, they seem to be in stock here:

Unfortunately they are in Brasov; I was there in September, pity I didn't know about them.

Don’t think there is any difference between Z4 and Z6 bearings !

Cheers Philip.

The flywheels and clutch units have differences, so I can only assume there are more

I have a spare, unused, NOS FW1174 S6 bearing sitting on the shelf here Josh. You're welcome to this one if you can replace it in the New Year sometime.

Don't know how best to get it to you up there in Cheshire in a hurry though? I can pop it in a jiffy bag and stick it in the post if you like... any other suggestions? What's your favourite courier?

Hi Josh do you have any measurements and a picture of the type of carrier and I will have a look to see if I’ve got one 👍

So the measurements of the correct bearing are approx .675” deep and ID 1.505”
The boss on the carrier is approx 1.49” OD (I forgot to measure the shoulder at the end where the bearing press fits but it’ll be 1.5”) and 0.9” long

Hi Josh the one we have is well used and will probably squeal under load so if Chris has a known good one I would go for that one

It's ready to post as soon as you PM me your address Josh :)

Bear in mind although unused and properly stored, this bearing is several decades old and all the grease inside will have hardened. I had a similar NOS release bearing start to fail on a Classic Marathon a few years ago after not much use and it was due to lack of lubrication. Developed loads of play and was as rough as a rough thing.

Suggest sticking this one in an old tin over a heat source and melt the old grease out, then add new grease to the recipe until you're happy it's all properly lubricated inside with fresh stuff. I did this on the replacement I fitted and I've never had a problem since.

If you use your kitchen hob just wait until your Mum's out though.
