Clutch Pilot Bearing Installation Isuzu Rodeo

Installing new clutch pilot bearing that has a metal cover (instead of a rubber/plastic cover) on a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo 2.6L. When driving the bearing in with a socket matching the outside diameter of the bearing, the metal cover seemed to slightly deform. The bearing spins freely when installed at the proper depth.

Is this OK to go forward with, and does this require additional grease packed in or around the bearing?

  1. Hello

    If the bearing is turning freely and the balls are not touching the plate, it should be good to go. The plate is to protect the bearing balls from dust and some water. If there aren’t too much damages on the plate, you do not have to worry.
