Replacement of Ferrari testarossa Clutch thrust race

  1. 1. Testarossa Clutch Thrust Race Also know as the ‘throw out bearing’
  2. 2. Tools required • Nothing other than standard workshop tools • Copper grease • ‘O’ ring grease • Brake / clutch fluid.
  3. 3. Based on: • 1987 Testarossa • Euro Model • F113B • Tubi Sports Exhaust
  4. 4. • Remove the four10mm nuts holding the air inlet and heat cover
  5. 5. • Remove the two large screw clips that connect the air filter box to the large rubber hoses • Disconnect the cloth covered oil tank breather hose
  6. 6. • Slacken the 10mm nuts holding the air filter box to the left and right plenums. • Remove the whole air filter box and heat shield, we can now get the clutch housing. • Be careful with the heat shield, it is an asbestos sandwich.
  7. 7. • Remove the clutch hydraulic lines from the clutch housing and cap off the hose.
  8. 8. • Remove the stainless steel heat shield from the rear of the clutch housing. Three 10mm nuts.
  9. 9. • Remove the exhausts so that there is space to the rear of the clutch housing. Mine looks like this when the Tubi is removed.
  10. 10. • Drain the oil from the Transmission housing (NOT the main gearbox) There should be only approximately 1/2 pint of oil in the transmission.
  11. 11. • This is a view of the clutch housing and transmission with the engine out of the car. Remove all the 13mm nuts and bolts on the periphery, don't forget the one hiding underneath.
  12. 12. • Using a rubber mallet, give the clutch housing a loosening tap to release the seal. • Pull the clutch and transmission rearwards to remove. • The unit is quite heavy so be prepared to take the weight once it is released. I always remove the rear bumper and lower valance to help but its up to you. • Don't loose the two ‘O’ rings on the large steel tubes.
  13. 13. • We are in! • This is the clutch thrust race sitting on the engine output shaft. • Remove the small circlip and the bearing should pull free. • I took the opportunity to remove the whole unit for servicing • When replacing the housing add a little copper grease to the shaft.
  14. 14. • Re-build is just the reverse of the removal. • Take note of the torque settings in the Work Shop Manual (WSM) • Get a helper to bleed the clutch • Test drive • Beer, Job done!
