You've been thinking about installing a hydraulic clutch bearing in your vehicle. This is a great option to gain valuable space in the engine bay and simplify the clutch release system. Before opening the hood, let's review some common mistakes to avoid when installing.
- Does not take time to install
Hydraulic bearing installation is not a simple plug-in. Reading the instructions carefully and making sure you understand how to install a bearing will save you countless hours of frustration.
- No precise measurement settings
Getting the right measurements is critical. Mounting charts give you the exact measurements you need to successfully mount your bearings. You need a good set of dial calipers to take measurements. Take the time to check to make sure your numbers are accurate.
- Do not use Teflon tape on accessories
Inlet fittings for hydraulic bearings must be installed with Teflon tape. You might think you have super sealant or other miracle products; don't be fooled.
- Misdiagnosing leaks
The best way to diagnose the source of the leak is to hang the bearing under the car and wire it up and have someone operate the pedals. It will save you a lot of time if you send us the part without finding the leak.
