Hello, new guy here
I'm noticing that I can't create my own forum posts, is this because I am new and there is some kind of probationary period or something? I apologize in advance for posting an irrelevant discussion, but this seems to be the only area where I can initiate a thread. I found nothing regarding my issue in any of the other threads.
^^^ Please ignore this comment, I am now able to post in forums. I believe my computer was at fault. I will re-post this in the correct forum, please accept my apologies.
Either way, I have a question about the TSK1 quill repair kit. Transmission is off my car, on a bench and awaiting some feedback on whether or not to even install the thing.
It has significant play between the sleeve and throw-out bearing inner surface. Enough play to render the entire repair kit useless - as it will destroy the new repair sleeve and clutch assembly after just a few thousand miles i'm sure.
I have already ordered 2 from the Subaru dealership and both are bad in my opinion. I do understand that once the grease is applied it will tighten this play up, but not 0.040" - and not to mention, the grease won't stay for that long anyway. As of now I'm convinced that the TSK1 repair sleeve kit is useless and will only do more damage to my transmission. This is all very upsetting to me because apparently these repair sleeves are supposed to be great. I've heard nothing but good reviews.
Perhaps I received two bad ones in a row? What are the odds - or am I just crazy and the huge amount of play is normal?
Someone please let me know if these are all normal issues when dealing with this after market part. I have already pulled the transmission out twice in one month because of throw-out bearing issues.
