    CHECK YOUR CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT !!!!! DONT WAIT FOR YOUR THROW OUT BEARING TO BLOW UP. Some of you are just reading this now and may be too late
    This will help you determine if you need a new bearing .
    Your throw out bearing is semi-centrifical which means its only pre-loaded when you push your pedal down .When your foot is off the clutch pedal , the throw out bearing is NOT suppose to turn and shouldnt be pre-loaded against the pressure plate fingers .The adjustment is made under the dash at the pedal and master pushrod adjustment .As your clutch wears in , the throw out bearing begins to turn all the time and wears the bearing out premature unless a clutch adjustment is made . The chirping you are hearing is the point in time where your throw out bearing begins to touch the pressure plate fingers .The pressure plate is spinning and the throw out bearing is stationary . Your clutch is starting to wear in a little and this is an early warning that its time to re-adjust the clutch and is how these clutches have operated for very long time .
    When this happens , The sound will only be noticeable in neutral with the truck running . When you push the clutch pedal down , the throw out bearing will start turning and the chirping will go away .Some people believe that the bearing is suppose to turn all the time which is totally incorrect .The throw out bearing is "not" designed to be preloaded against the fingers of the pressure plate . Other members make adjustments to their clutch without knowing how a diaphram style clutch works and tell the world they fixed the chirping but really all they did was make the bearing turn all the time - the noise went away so it must be fixed " WRONG " Wrong Wrong .
    A diaphram style clutch works like a pivot . As the clutch disc wears in , the fingers on the pressure plate move towards the throw out bearing . Anyone who has changed out their clutch will notice as you are bolting down the new pressure plate to the flywheel , the pressure plate fingers will move outwards towards the release bearing until you have all the bolts torqued down . The same thing occurs as your clutch disc begins to wear in.THE PRESSURE PLATE FINGERS MOVE TOWARDS THE RELEASE BEARING .
    Even if you have a new clutch installed at a garage , make sure the free play adjustment is done correctly since some mechanics skip this step and actually use procedures used by Ford to fix your Toyota and accidently send you on your way with a spinning preloaded bearing .Your new bearing is "NOT " going to last as long if its preloaded against the pressure plate fingers because preloading increases as the clutch disc begins to wear .This means that when the clutch is new and adjusted correctly , there is no weight on the bearing . As the clutch disc starts to break in , the weight on the bearing doubles .Print out the FSM free play adjustment and take it to the shop thats doing your clutch job so they have instructions to follow .
    There are other issues with the throw out bearing . The above issue is only one of them .

    A very common problem is the shifter bushing .
    Marlin Crawler . Guys are saying this bushing is much stronger than the factory bushing . Also stands to reason that if your changing the bushing , you might as well change the transmission fluid and transfer case if 4X4 . It,s so much easier filling the transmission through the shifter hole and it only uses 2.3 quarts . This is going to save you from trying to use a flimsy pump underneath the truck .

    WHAT DOES THE PILOT BEARING DO ?
    When you push your clutch pedal down to the floor the clutch disc is no longer squeezed against the flywheel . The purpose of the pilot bearing is to support the radial load of the spinning clutch disc when the clutch disc is moved away from the flywheel . A clutch disc doesnt seem heavy when you hold it in your hands , but think about when you dump your clutch at 5000 rpm hehehe . If you beleive your pilot bearing is on its way out , Its going to make noise when you have your clutch pedal pushed down .

    Here is what a bad pilot bearing sounds like

    There is a big difference between a Suzuki transmission and a Toyota transmission . From what you are saying here , your problem with the Suzuki transmission should be the same with every other vehicle .
    I wish it was that easy and I am sure there are cheaper places to locate a rebuild kit . This was only an example .;)

    Sorry if I don't post to the right place, but it seems all the knowleage necessary to answer my question is here.

    My first plan was to use a R150 being a 2RZ... I know I just need a 2TR/3RZ to R155 bellhousng adapter from a 05+ 2WD tacoma.

    I will have to purchase separatly about all the drivetrain components for my next project and the bellhousing are not that easy to source separatly. On the other hand purchasing a second hand complete manual transmission from a 2WD with his bellhousng is easier and cheap.

    Got me thinking that using a newer R155 transmission with better ratios is something that would be very nice but I would have to convert to R155F to use a tranfert case behind it.

    Can someone tell me how easy it is to convert it and how it must be done? Does it only involve to replace the tail housing? Do an older tail housing from a R150 can be used?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hey guys, so have a '96 Taco, 4x4, ext. cab, about 203K on the clock, 3.4L V6, manual tranny.

    My issue is that over the last 6 months, I've been hearing a weird "ping" or more like a "tink" even when letting the clutch out. I'm not sure the best way to describe it, maybe if I was siting in neutral on a level surface then put in first and when to let the clutch out with a bit of gusto I'd get a bit of loading then a "tink"... I can pretty easily replicate it back and forth in reverse to first every time letting the clutch out and as it loads up you hear the "tink" again... I've even heard it in second and third.. usually by 4th or 5th I don't hear it much. Any Ideas?

    I've greased all u joints and slip yoke and drove immediately after and it did not help. I've gotten underneath the truck and even checked the u joints they all seem to be firm with no play in them.

    It seems really similar to what problem this guy was having: but I'm not sure...anyone ever had this happen before?

    Coincidentally, a transmission fluid leak seems to have developed at the intermediate plate where all that FIPG sealant is.. how big of a b###h is that to fix? Good grief.
    TIA

    I'm right in the middle of it. Doing 2wd swap. Hardest part was sourcing the parts.

    Anyone know where I could find the dimensions for the r155f bell housing bolt pattern? Doesn't look like any of the given articles have that information, but I haven't looked through everyone either...

    Edit....just relised I really need to just be looking for bolt pattern on 2tr engine....
