SMF Con release bearings
About 2 years ago now I converted my GT JTD to the single mass flywheel courtesy of a GTA clutch I had in the garage and an Autolusso solid flywheel. The car has driven great ever since and overall I'm very happy with it. after about Eighteen months however the clutch pedal went to the floor, there was nothing wrong with the hydraulics so the gearbox had to come off and what I found was that one of the "ears" had broken off the release bearing. A whole new clutch was put in "just for good measure" and the car back on the road feeling great again.
Sadly 6 months later and the same thing again. This time I'm only replacing the bearing as the clutch is virtually as new but it still looks like the clutch fork is tearing the ears off the release bearing.
When I originally changed the flywheel, I changed the slave cylinder to a GTA spec one as well to match. I'm sure I read somewhere that when Autolusso do SMF conversions they also change the slave cylinder but maybe not to the GTA one, if anyone knows another reason this could be happening (other than the wrong slave cylinder) I'd be grateful for your input. if you've experienced this and cured it please let me know how. Thanks
