Standard bearings are NTN, which is a name brand. Made in Japan. It's going to last.

Yeah, I guess I'll go ahead and give it a shot. Worst case I have to do it all over again. Maybe I find a 6 speed before then, hopefully.

Really upset with FM still, I want that large PP surface of the heavy duty one.

That is a little lame. FYI, the FM heavy duty TO bearings are stock housing with a bearing welded to it. Looks pretty baus when you have it in your hand, I was super impressed, enough that I'll be going FM2 when I upgrade clutches next.

That's kinda what I'm worried about, it looks like the stamped steel cage is beefed up a lot on the FM heavy duty one.

You completely kersploded one didn't you Curly, with some nasty damage to the RMS? I don't want that, not at all...

Yeah, that was after I brake cleanered out the grease, which destroyed the TO bearing. Another time an Ebay one exploded, but that's expected.

Organizing parts in the garage today. Found out I already had a throwout bearing. It was the pilot bearing I needed. Ordered one online (Nachi brand), which should be here in a couple of days.

Guess I'll be posting a for sale thread soon...
