DOES YOUR PEDAL FEEL ROUGH OR NOTCHY?
DOES YOUR PEDAL FEEL LIKE IT’S STICKING?
ARE YOU HAVING TO REPLACE YOUR CLUTCH & / OR RELEASE
BEARING MORE OFTEN THAN YOU SHOULD?
These are the most common symptoms associated
with a damaged or grooved quill on a transmission. It is also
referred to as the snout, bearing carrier, or case extension. In
most cases it is an integral part of the transmission case & cannot be
replaced. The logical solution is to replace the case or the
transmission. Both options are expensive & time
consuming, neither of which solves the problem permanently.
In the operation of the clutch, the release or
throw-out bearing slides on the clutch snout or quill, allowing you to
engage and disc-engage the clutch mechanism. Due to various reasons
the quill becomes grooved over time. If the quill were made of a
harder metal than aluminum, this would not be as common. The most
common causes are: improper clutch adjustment, defective clutch
assemblies, stop & go traffic, keeping your foot on the clutch
(commonly referred to as riding the clutch), loss of lubricant, heat,
The effects of these grooves on the clutch
operation are catastrophic. They cause: premature clutch disc
wear, premature bearing failure (further adding to the problem), sticky
&/or jerky pedal travel, rattling clutch forks, transmission damage,
The Transmission Sleeve Kit (TSK) solves
this problem by utilizing a sleeve, precision machined of 304 Stainless
steel, which slips over the original quill. This provides a smooth, hard
surface for the oversize bearing to slide on. It is anchored with set
screws and is removable & re-usable. As in the case of the Subaru, it
must be removed in order to allow any transmission repairs.
After installing the Transmission Sleeve Kit
you have eliminated the problem forever! You will notice a
smooth, fluid like, feel to the pedal. Your engagements will be smoother.
Your clutch will last longer. This in turn, will reduce the wear on your
transmission. It will never groove again!
The kit comes complete with a 303 Stainless
steel sleeve, set screws & hex wrench, oversized release bearing,
hi-temp grease packet, notification sticker, & instructions. The kit
comes with a 1 year, unlimited mileage, warranty.
