    We should see if we can get a group buy for the sleeve kit and oversized TO bearing from someone who sells it. That makes more sense then a stock TO! With a stock TO bearing the problem
    Will return almost immediately

    There is a TSB out for the throw out bearing issue, I didn't feel like going thru this whole thread to see, but yeah. I had mine replaced with the transmission from both TSB's. Toyota knows they go bad easily.

    It's not the TO bearing that goes bad as much as it's the aluminum snout that the bearing rides on. The bearing race is steel and it rides on soft aluminum. When I changed my clutch and TO the snout was full of scrapes from the TO. The inside bearing race that rides on the aluminum had no defects on it, the defects were all on the snout. I repaired the snout and slapped a new TO on there and within 3 days it was chirping away.

    If there's a Phantom TSB for the TO bearing then what's the TsB # ?

    I'd be interested in another group buy if it happens pretty quickly.
