Lastly, what are the other parts pictured in the clutch kit? Is one of those a
throwout bearing? What are the two other parts? (Not the alignment tool).
My guess is: both a regular pilot bearing and a Kevlar pilot bearing?
Either way don't use 'em, use a 6003 sealed ball bearing. :)
Some of the better(?) kits have a 6003 sealed ball bearing included.
Guy at Centerforce told me over the phone that the Kevlar pilot bearings
kick butt -if- it ain't dusty. If it's dusty they wear out -fast- and told me
not to ever use one here in Arizona.
I use a 6003 in my 351w (300i6 too, right?) and 6303 in my 360FE.
Too bad they cheapened the old needle-bearing-type to the point of just
barely being able to do its job. :/ The one in the parts truck was already
looking bad and it had a relatively new looking clutch in it. It's the same
bearing Ford used in the rear of alternators. Used to it was a full
compliment of needle bearings now its -minimum-! They're now -short-
and -few-. As few as they could get away with and looks like Timken and
SKF etc are all on board with the new "more plastic spacer than needles"
way of making 'em too. :(

ps- Too bad I couldn't hear the video, I'd've been all over you
to do something about it? :/ Everybody that knows me knows...
"new noises are bad! :/ ...look into 'em right away"
"what's the dew point? :/" LOL :)
