Installed my Quik-Latches this weekend – And my new throw out bearing.
So I now have the FM level 2 clutch with a custom 6 puck ceramic sprung disc. While I was swapping the clutch in I decided to replace the throw out bearing. BIG MISTAKE. Turns out the FM level 2 comes with an upgraded bearing that is intended to take the abuse of the serious pressure plate that they include.
This was a brand new OE bearing after about 100 miles:
Thanks to the guys at Flyin Miata I finally tracked down a bearing and here is the difference.
Tossed this guy in and decided to install my Quik Latches:
There was actually already a pretty good spot – Remove the plastic retainer and install the quik latch stud.
Drilled the holes and we were good to go.
It now takes me about 30 seconds to remove my front clip…
Since my manifold is out being coated at Dart I took the time to clean the under side of my hood..
Calling it a weekend.. I’ll keep you guys updated when the manifold shows up. Should be cool – Inside and outside ceramic blended coating.
