My brother and I did a clutch install in record time !
Started the car up - ran great -
Step on the clutch pedal,- Uh-oh. Goes right to the floor kinda like
steppin' on a plum !
I know the throw-out bearing can be put in backwards.
So I asked my brother if he might have installed it backward ?
He says, "Throwout bearing ? I thought **you** put that in ?"
We did it a second time even faster than the first ! (And remembered the
throwout bearing this time).
So much for teamwork !
