This keeps the tob from pressing the pressure plate far enough to release the clutch. But its enough to keep the slave from repturing.
    Is it possible to re orient the throwout bearing while trans is still on? Say from a 1in drilled inspection hole?

    Wow... old thread. Anyway, no you can't. TOB goes over the input shaft on the transmission.
    Nothing but projects!
