86 throw out bearing bad?

Was picking up my buddy and on the way home my clutch wouldn't disengage and the pedal wouldn't come back up. Thought it might be the throw out bearing. Anyone else know what's up with this? Thanks

could be either tob or cable. but if it was the cable you sould be able to get the pedal up. you may have to lift up on it though.

Push the clutch in and start it, it grinds. Let off of the pedal it goes away. I think tob.

i forget what its called, but if the shaft the tob rides up is galled then you may want to change it to. also its a good idea to use a steel one if the one on there is aluminum.

It's the front bearing retainer on the transmission, and yes, if it is aluminum replace it with a steel or cast iron model.

Valeo a good brand clutch? My clutch looks practically new and so does my pressure plate. Tob was toasted.

most people like to change it while there in there. but if its in good shape and you dont have the funds you should be fine.

Re: 86 throw out bearing bad?

Use some Brake Cleaner and wash the gunk and grease off the clutch and pressure plate and you should be ok. Check your pilot bearing while you are in there too.
If that is an aluminum tube on the transmission front bearing support, you should plan to replace it with a steel or iron one when you can. The aluminum ones usually wear and cause the TOB to hang up and cause problems.

Then file it down and sandpaper it as smooth as possible until you can get a new one.

Pilot bearing looks and is in good condition. Is there a grease I can use on it before I put everything back together?

It appears to be and if it is a roller bearing some lithium gun grease or wheel bearing grease will work.

Ok, just noticed one of the clips on the clutch fork broke off. Not for the tob, but for the pivot ball. Could I get away with that being broke? Thx

No, you should replace that to ensure it doesn't come completely off while you are driving the car.

Good choice and it appears that you have a Steeda TRI-AX shifter.

If it wasn't for the clip being broke on the fork, I would be driving it by now. Crazy how something so small ruins the holiday weekend. Its all good.

I was looking for a pro 5.0 shifter, but now that I have a steeda, I'm happy. My buddy was wondering why mine shifted better than his. Now we know lol

It was the clip that holds the clutch fork in place.
