1950 / 2301 - Throw out bearing
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away

Looking for guidance.

My bearing is toast so I can't get part numbers or accurate specs.

I am trying to track down what the difference is in the parts that are listed in the database.

Factory group 3.148

Part listing is 341817 for the/my 2301

But also listed for that group is 426491,335355, 426491.

I'm guessing they are different dimensions for the 288 10.5in vs 356 11in clutch?

I found an nos 426491 collar and bearing replacement but I am not sure if it will work.

The 341817 is listed for RHD cars (right hand drive). I suspect the difference between a right and left hand throwout bearing assy would be the export engine which I think was the six only. The same assy is also used on the older six and 282 engines. Unless your car is RHD you want the 426491 shown in the other listing for a 2301. That bearing assy is also the same piece used in 51-4 cars since most of their engines and trans are essentially the same as used in the 22-23rd series small eight.

The clutch plate size is one difference between engines but the more important difference on that particular bearing is the diameter of the throwout assy. The 356 engines use a transmission with a larger input shaft and the sleeve that the bearing assy rides on is larger than used with the other engines. 335355 is the piece listed for 2206-13-26- etc models with the 356 and the bearing assy would fit that larger transmission only.
