Triumph TR6 - unstuck clutch

Hi Guys; About a month or so ago I put on "Sticky clutch Syndrome" Just wanted to let you know the results. My mechanic found a modified throw-out bearing. It seems the sleeve is only about an inch and a half long on the stock bearing and developed a binding action as it moved along the shaft. He located someone who punched out the old sleeve and replaced it with a bronze sleeve bearing that runs the entire length of the throw-out bearing. Exorbitantly expensive but works slick as "goose grease" (scuse the reference. Will keep you informed. Thought you might be interested in case anyone else developes the dreaded "sticky clutch"
