            Go OEM for this

            Used an aftermarket retainer and in 100 miles the bearing tube separated from the cast base. I always used Ford ones in the past and took a chance on an aftermarket one. Needless to say I learned my lesson on this critical part. Put the Ford part in and no problems 2000 miles on trans rebuild and rolling.

            No issues

            Perfect fit no problems. Never know what you're going to need when you do the first clutch job on a used car so I generally like to replace everything related while I'm in there the first time.

            Strong and light weight the aluminum one likes to get waves in it and that's what cause my throwout bearing to keep going out finally replaced it with this one and haven't had an issue since

            This Berring retainer fit perfectly on the manual transmission of my 1994 Ford Mustang gt and it is made better as well. You can't beat the price of this product and quality. I very much recommend this product to anyone who need it.

            Works as described, make sure you check the end play before removing you old bearing retainer. If its loose make sure you shim the bear race correctly to avoid premature wear and vibrations.

            T5 Bearing retainer

            I replaced a beat up bearing retainer with this Ford Racing Retainer, it fit perfectly and feels higher quality than the one that it had. So far no performance issues and now I can rest in peace knowing that the throw out bearing wont go out on me due to a bad bearing retainer.

            Good product

            When I was installing this I noticed it didn't come with a new retainer bearing and shim! I thought it would've came with it. Removing bearing from my existing retainer turned out to be a pain! Had to yank and pry for a while to get it to pop up. Maybe heating old retainer would've made it easier but it eventually broke loose. For the price I would like to see hose pets included with purchase but otherwise a good product and easy install. Haven't finished with engine rebuild get so haven't ested out new clutch kit with retainer. I'm sure it'll work great as all other parts from AM!! Thanks

            Looks a lot more sturdy and well built.

            Fit perfectly and seems much more well built than the original. I haven't driven the car yet with this install but decided to due it since I had to drop the transmission anyway.

            Great upgrade

            The GT's have the weak aluminum version of this. It doesn't hold up well to years of abuse from the steel throw out bearing. This stands up the abuse far better.
