IMPORTANT NEWS for anybody having THROW OUT BEARING trouble ......

.

The first of the PDM TO Bearing & Pilot Shaft repair kits have been delivered to one of the FJ guys and he has the pics and is going to keep us updated on the dealer install / repair of his 6 speed FJ (same deal as the Tacoma 6 speed). See thread here:

http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...ml#post1658042

This thread also contains up-to-date info on this whole TO Brg deal (including where the bell housing debacle stands) !

Question Future Availability ?

My only concern would be the future availability of the new TOB from PDM, since I can infer that in he new setup the Inside Diameter of the TOB would be different from the stock one.
I would like to know if the new TOB can be found as a standard replacement part or it has to be custom from PDM only.
I'm leaning for this solution when the chirp comes back (I know it will come back).
I hope the new TOB is an over the counter part from any auto store.

I hope to keep this truck until it dies in my hands and down the road the clucth and TOB will be replaced at least a couple of times due to normal wear.

Good point... it would suck to have to keep buying modded tob's or taking them to get the inner sleeve shaved by a metal shop.

We had been told that the bearing is a standard part sourced from some other vehicle. In this case, for some reason, I'm thinking I read somewhere that it is from a Tundra. Not positive on that though, but a good question to put to PDM.

Also note : The kit replaces Toyota part #31230-60240. This P/N is for the FJ, not sure if it's the same on the Tacoma (they are the same transmission and clutch parts though). You can verify it with your dealer. Call & give them your VIN & ask for the proper part number.
The kits are now available and the cost will be $195 plus S&H of $9 for ground, $18 for 2nd day, & $40 for overnight. I think I read that one of the guys who bought one said the price had gone up a little more than originally quoted. We have been talking to Joel Cox @ PDM (http://www.pdmtsk.com/home.html).

I got mine replaced last weekend. The tech was trying to listen for it but couldn't replicate the problem until we went for a test ride. I mentioned that it was most prevalent with the clutch slightly pushed in. He verified that it was the same sound. He said he's done a few of them and that mine was the first one he encountered where it wouldn't do it in neutral or while driving.
