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 !
