I just got a Centerforce throwout bearing to put in my 4 spd for the engine swap. The problem Im looking at is which way does the bearing go in? It has an offset design which is round then comes to a point on one side. Does that tip go towards the fork shaft or away from it and towards the open part of the case?
From your discription sounds like the point is to keep the bearing sleeve from turning and should hit the fork fingers to stop it. If this sounds right and it does touch the fingers thoughout the full travel of the fork then it would not make much difference which way you put it on as long as there is no interference from anything else. Now this is said without seeing what it looks like.

I figured it wouldnt make a difference. What you said seams about right, the ring piece that the fork slides into is oblong, almost egg shaped. I would agree and say it is just ment to stop the bearing from spinning
