What determines the length of the throwout bearing. I have a stock 57 283 with all original clutch related parts. I installed a muncie 4 speed and will purchase a new clutch pressure plate assembly. Which throwout bearing is correct; short or long? Thanks, Chevi

The original pressure plate has a "flat" diaphragm spring and takes a long throwout bearing.

Later model pressure plates and performance pressure plates have a conical or "raised finger" diaphragm spring and take the short throwout bearing.

Great topics, Pete. My uncle is looking to get this 283 as the next project after we finished installing the suspension from 4Wheelonline onto the Wrangler and clear the garage.
