I understand you mean the bearing fit in the hole where the PP spring fingers are.

This is very interesting. o.O I also see only one bearing listed for the '89-05 Miata. The bearings 'rolling collar' (that touched the fingers) even looks small. That's very interesting. This leads me to believe there are different throw out bearings floating around autopart stores. The one I ordered for my '94 fit both the KL PP and the trans sleeve. Now I REALLY with I had all those parts to figure out what was in my car.

You are saying 1.6 and 1.8 have different TOBs? The only TOB I can find is Mazda part number B622-16-510 which fits both. Could you please show some evidence there are indeed different TOBs?

Getting the wrong PP crossed my mind too but then again, there are other vendors on ebay showing pictures of the PP I have. Thus I suggested there may be variations of the theme.
Search ebay for MZC 543 to see what you do not want to get.

Even if you managed to get a long finger PP the thicker stub on the disc looks like it may be a problem. There must be a reason why the Miata disc stub is so slender.

OK. So it is not a PP issue at all. You were lucky to get a non-standard TOB.
As one option the Toyota Corolla TOB might fit both the MX6 PP and the Miata transmission input cover shaft, as I suggested earlier.

Anyway, I think I'm done figuring this one out. I joined the transmission to the engine over the weekend, bled the clutch and it still looks like everything is working with my modified parts - grips and releases properly. Engine is not running yet though.
