Default long or short throwout bearing?

Anyone?

Ram 33 pound steel flywheel. summit part number RAM-1501
Ram 11" clutch disk. summit part number RAM-980
Ram 11" long style pressure plate (2400lb). summit part number RAM-436

Lakewood 15000 bellhousing with lakewood 15501 adjustable pivot ball and lakewood 15500 fork.

I figured i'd go with a ram throw out bearing just to keep with the theme, but which do i go with?

Brian,

The 'flat fingered' pressure plate uses the longer throwout bearing. The plate with the fingers that are 'bent upward' uses the short bearing. Make sense?

The flat fingered pressure plates were generally used on 6 cylinder and lower performance V-8's.

Thanks!

I dont think any of the clutch companies make their own t/o bearings, they use Timken, BCA or China companies. Last Centerforce bearing I ordered ended up having a BCA 1705C stamping. 1.250 height. If you find the industry number, you dont have to pay the extra pricing.

agree on the BCA bearing. Autozone stocks them.

You may not be happy with the final position of the Lakewood fork - I'd use the GM fork.
