    Hey y'all

    Just want to know what this ring is and where I can get a new one from? It's from the t50 something to do with the thrust bearing?

    I have never seen that before in my gearbox changes. Did you pull it off?

    Yeah I think this is how it supposed to sit in the middle of the bearing but its quite worn and quite loose.

    Ah right, still odd... I just had NPC press on a new bearing and I didn't really take much notice of the old one, apart from feeling that is was thoroughly shagged.

    I have a feeling that bearing is put on backwards. Care to take a pic of the bearing on the other side?

    so its meant to be a part of the thrust bearing?

    everytime i swap a clutch in one of my boxes i dont alter anything on the thrust bearing, just put the new one straight on from the box...

    so could possibly be a case of just grab a new thrust bearing

    ill have a look at my spare box and thrust bearing setup tomorrow to be sure

    Aight so I got another one today, was second hand. But now I realise what was wrong

    Basically it was that worn that the metal face of the bearing came off and the ring was all that remainned here is some pics
