Here's what I get for trying to get a job done quickly...I must have installed a thousand motors and never thought I'd of done this! Backwards throw out bearing. Hopefully these pics help someone down the road to not do this! What do y'all think about the collar on the pressure plate? I'm inspecting it, seems usable still. It's one of the removable Kennedy ones. Obviously the bearing is shit at this point...enjoy!

Wow! I've done allot of dumb things on cars. Wow.

It's probably a good idea to replace the collar on the PP.

Good Luck.

Looks like you need a little hammer work on the transmission bracket, that or is that a spout to let the water drip off.

IF it were mine there is no question, replace TO bearing and ring on pressure plate, but that is just my anal/ocd thinking...
