This will be saved for one of those fall weeks when it is just too miserable to go outside but the man-cave/garage is still warm enough that my fingers haven't lost their feeling. I'm going to replace the grenade with 2 steels and one friction to make everything stock, and I'll replace the stock throw out bearing with a 7200B bearing at the same time. I'll post the results then.
I found the time on some cool mornings last week to replace the throw out bearing and the grenade plate. I posted the details of tools, steps and results in a separate post. I hope this helps some DIY riders. It is not a hard job if you take your time, plan well and have the right tools. If I could do it, anyone can.
