Using hydraulic technology from Tilton Engineering (Tilton 6000 Series), these new bearings are easy to install (slip over the bearing retainer of the transmission), and are built to last. The LF Series Internal Hydraulic Release Bearing is designed as a solution where the external slave causes interference or where no external kit has been developed. The light pedal feel of the LF Series is maintained with the added benefit of no clearance issues.
Compatibility extends to most bell housings. While the external slave only works with specific bells, the internal style allows the use of other bells (ie: original 4-speed bells, big block bells, etc). In fact, one of the markets for this slave is the Ford 4-speed Toploader.
The adjustable sleeve allows nearly 1.25″ of adjustment to accommodate a wide variety of clutches. The bearing height is adjustable from 1.77″ to 3.00″. Piston travel is a full 0.7″ .
Bearing retainer guide tube size should measure 1.430″
A typical complete Ford T-56 Tilton Hydraulic Slip-on T/O bearing solution consists of the LF Series Master Clutch Kit, a steel braided line of appropriate length, and the LF Series Internal Hydraulic Release Bearing.
