Product Description

The Input Bearing Retainer on T5 equipped 1983-1993 Fox Body Mustangs also doubles as a Clutch Release Bearing (Throw-Out Bearing) sleeve. From the factory these Bearing Retainers were made of an aluminum base & sleeve & often developed wear grooves on the sleeve causing the Release Bearing to bind & create all manor of Clutch Engagement & Disengagement issues. Luckily Latemodel Restoration has the solution for you. Our Bearing Retainer is made of an aluminum base with a steel sleeve to eliminate wear grooves & keep your clutch movement smooth. It fits all 83-93 T5 equipped 5.0L Mustangs & is a great addition to any clutch swap.

1 Stars   Fell apart within 20 miles.

Not happy with this product. I installed this retainer when I rebuilt my transmission. After around 20 or so miles, the transmission became almost impossible to get into gear while sitting still. When pulling the transmission to inspect the issue. I found that the steel sleeve had came out of the aluminum base. I replaced this one with an all steel bearing retainer and my shifting problems went away.

If you have your T-5 out and have not already replaced it, DO IT! Had stiff clutch pedal feel to find the wear grooves deep in the factory retainers. This steel replacement is amazing.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Same as the other 1 star. Steel bearing came out of aluminum housing. Save your money and go with the ford racing one. You won't regret it because it won't break.
not happy with this product.

When I rebuilt my transmission myself, I needed a good replacement for my stock retainer. With this new steel retainer, I replaced stock perfectly and added strength to my driveline.

This is a must for rebuilding or when you'll have access to the transmission. This was a must while I put a used T5 in for my swap from AOD!
