97 rodeo clutch repair- throw out bearing swingout arm
The throw out bearing arm has heat warped springs, will not hold throwout bearing to stab the transmission. we have put the bellhousing back on the motor block and was a nightmare with all the tight bolt places.
how do we place the throwout bearing on the clutch release arm, once the bellhousing is mounted.
do we have to pull the bellhousing out again or are there any dirty tricks we can use?

Re: 97 rodeo clutch repair- throw out bearing swingout...
Im not sure that u can u could try though it may be tricky through the back and take a while for what its worth i would say unfortunately just pull it back off at least u can see for sure you have fitted it correctly hope this helps also for access try loosening engine mounts and gently jacking up the front of the engine also you can try a a couple of extension bars with a swivel usually makes the job more bareable.

The clutch slave cylinder pushes against a throwout arm
The throwout arm is a lever and it pushes against the throwout bearing which thenpresses against the clutch plate and dis-engages the clutch.
Throwout bearings are typically sealed units that last until they fail, at which time they get replaced.
You should not have to worry about greasing it.
Hope this helps.
possibly broken springs in the pressure plate,and or throwout bearing rattling,clutch disk could have gotten hot and warped as well,if it worse case possible input shaft the bearing could be shot.too many choices too list, but give you a place too start looking
Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.
Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
Sorry to tell you this-but you do not have the throw out bearing fork properly installed on throwout bearing. There is a spring clip on the fork that has to fit inside of throwout bearing's "groove"-I bet you the spring clip is on the BACKSIDE of throwout bearing! You will have to pull transmission back away from the engine to gain access to fix this. I do not envy the chore ahead of you-sorry!
Throwout bearing is going out so it means you would have to remove the transmission, and also could have a bad pilot bearing out and or a broken clutch spring so it would still need to remove the transmission to fix it and then If it where me I would do a clutch job on it.
clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master
cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the
line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have
some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the
clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with
springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm
that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).
Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions
that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece
of ice or debris stuck in there).
