Product Description

Mustang Improved T5 Steel Bearing Retainer
Replace the grooved bearing retainer in your 1983-1993 Mustang T5 with this new and improved 5.0 Resto steel bearing retainer! This new and improved design features tighter tolerances to prevent the shaft from separating from the base, as well as a durable steel construction to prevent grooves from wearing into the sleeve! From the factory these bearing retainers were made of an aluminum base and sleeve, which developed wear grooves on the sleeve, causing the release bearing to bind. 5.0 Resto's new and improved sleeve has an aluminum base with steel sleeve to provide a smooth and fluid clutch operation! A new input shaft seal is pre-installed into the base to ensure leak free performance! 5.0 Resto's new and improved T5 bearing retainer is a direct replacement for your original and installs in a matter of minutes!

1 Stars   Nothing improved about this one...

I bought this thinking it would be better and "improved" as advertised from the older style bearing retainers that received negative reviews. Nevertheless, I installed it on my transmission to replace the aluminum retained that worked for years. The transmission started to develop a whine after a month and grew louder. Driving around town one day and let the clutch out in third and shattered the gears. I pulled the transmission to find that the steel sleeve had separated from the base as the older ones had. Failure to purchase the more expensive ford racing retainer and putting too much faith into an "improved" retainer led me to spend much more on a new t5z. Don't fall into the trap, don't spend cheap, don't buy this product. It's not worth your time and money.

I purchased this steel bearing retainer to complete my AOD to T5 conversion. This retainer installed with ease and has been problem free for about 500 miles now.

Make sure your oil drain back provisions are oriented in the correct way (rectangular end pointing down and the circular end pointing up) and torque the hardware to 15 lb/ft.

Also, before reinstalling the transmission into the car, be sure and lightly lubricate the steel shaft with quality grease to eliminate any binding from the throw out bearing.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Been running this on my cammed 90 GT convertible for a couple of month. I installed the retainer when I replaced my clutch and flywheel. It was one of those, while I am there I might as well replace the retainer. The fit and finish of the product is suburb. Bearing fit perfectly, throwout bearing lined up perfectly. Couldn't be happier!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Had problems with car going into gear hard at a stop. Took trans out and found the steel sleeve was slipping out of the aluminum housing. Not cool. LMR worked with me to make things right. Put some set screws in with red thread lock to keep sleeve in place. 1 star on the product and 5 for LMR averaging to 3.
