Throw out bearing type

01/10/2019 11:11
CP is reborn!?! Hello all. A search led me here and I was glad to see the new site up and running. Been a long time. I am doing a clutch job on the Bonnewagon. There are two types of release bearing: the self aligning and the angular contact. What is the difference and benefit of each?

Wow, I've been wrenching for decades, have lots of experience with 60s and 70s Pontiacs, and I love 4 speeds...yet I've never heard of the different types. I thought the clutch fork supported the bearing only in two points, which allowed for the bearing to "self align". And I've never had an issue using whatever bearing came in a clutch kit....
