I have my new throw out bearing, and my old transmission front cover sitting here. I can tell there is wear on the cover where the bearing slides, and I can wiggle the new bearing on the front cover a little bit, but how much is too much? Is it really nothing to worry about?



what made me think about it, from mazdatrix:

What we are finding is considerable wear on the transmission front cover from the continual release bearing movement. If worn too much, the pressure plate will fail prematurely from release bearing side movement and misalignment.
