    Alternative Clutch Thrust Bearing

    Has anyone tried replacing the standard 6003 ball race bearing that is being used as a thrust bearing with a proper thrust bearing - SKF 51203 ?
    It's 3 times the price but it's made for the job.

    Hmmm. Perhaps not a thrust bearing. There is an axial load on the 6003. It's held in position by the adjustment pin, if I remember correctly. A taper bearing might be a better solution - SKF 30202

    Thoughts anyone?

    Oh.. ... I've not changed mine yet , maybe I should as I've recently replaced the two main needle roller bearings.
    An interesting thought going for a tapered roller bearing , I had a BMW that used a similar thing on the shaft drive flexible joints .

    I've changed Nell's once and the engine I'm working on now probably needs it done as you can feel that it's no longer smooth. Hence the question.
