Q & A

What's in the Box

This replacement 1955-04 SB/BB Chevy pilot bushing is CNC machined from a Nylon/Kevlar composite that has a wear life five times longer than steel and prevents input shaft scoring.

Even better, it does not require grease, which eliminates the possibility of contaminating the clutch.

  • .598" I.D.
  • 1.105" O.D.

GM Stock Clutch Hydraulic Throwout Bearing
(Part #91025610)

Stock clutch hydraulic throwout bearing for stock-style 3-speed and 4-speed Chevy clutches only. Install simply by replacing one bolt from the front of the transmission with one of the provided studs, then shim to fit. Use 3/4" bore master cylinder.

This bearing is made much smaller than the racing version so that it will fit behind the "thicker" stock style clutches. This redesigned new housing is much cleaner as it has no boss on the body. Plus, this design also has a retainer on it to prevent over extension and seal damage.
