I have a clutch push rod bearing from a WLA I would like to refurbish.
I haven't pulled it apart yet, but, Is there a kit or a replacement bearing available to replace the old gritty one I have.
I don't like to scrap parts if I don't have to.
I found one on fleabay, but how do cylindrical rollers work revolving around 360 degrees, in a thrust application??
Shouldn't the profile of the roller elements be conical, so there is a total rolling action, rather than a rolling and sliding action.
Surely these bearings would recieve little grease, due to the zerk or alemite grease nipple on the clutch operating arm.
During maintenance, some folk would say, yep, I'll have to get around to doing something about that grease nipple, or yep, I'll have to remember to locate one of those special grease guns, and the bearing would suffer, not that they are a high duty cycle item.
Just a thought. Thanks always.
