Been hearing a little noise with the clutch in on the 53. So as we pick up the small stuff thought i had better drop the cove and see how bad things are. The cluch fork has worn threw the ends and it barley catching the throw out bearing. I can't find a exchange for it. The Hollander number for the plate and disk is a 307. My older book is a 54 so it lists 38-53 pon chevy and light truck. But comparing pictures the fork is different on chevy. Both my spotted parts cars are power guide. So no help there. Gm used the same throw out bearing for 50 years across the lines so a new one is easy to get. Anyone got a ida.

got stuff apart today. bad as I thought we will need a or should replace the pressure plate. it has it cut down to razor thin. the throw out bearing was frozen as I suspected and was spinning on the support. now to find parts. we can build the fork back up if we have to and make it work. the throw out bearing is waiting down town. but can't find the other pieces labeled Pontiac.
