Throw out bearing guide tube

I have had a very hard clutch pedal since I brought my car 6 months ago, I even bent the pedal. I have re bushed the pedal assy, and replaced the clutch cable, did every thing you can do out side of the bell housing.
I finally could not put up with it any longer and removed the engine/trans, I forgot how easy it was to work on 911/930 and had the engine out in 2.5 hours not struggling and taking my time. I should have done this a long time ago.
With advice from Brian (Turbo craft) and a part (throw out bearing guide tube) from our sponsor the clutch pedal is now so easy to push I thought some thing broke.
The guide tube had no grease on it and a notch worn in it. The fly wheel had a chunk of crude impede in it between the crank and the fly wheel, removed I still had run out of .005 inch. So I had it surfaced and trued. So for under a $150 I have a butter smooth clutch
I hope my story encourages the timed like I was to go after the seemingly big problems

Impressive. A few more photos and steps and you've got a good DIY topic.

I had to use an impact screwdriver to get my guide tube screws out on my G-50.

I had to grind the head off one of the screws, then when I had the guide tube off the rest of the screw came with my fingers.

I really forgot how comfortable and fairly easy it is to work on 911 based cars.
I used a motorcycle jack which has a big flat surface that I made real flat with a 18"x18" piece of ply wood that I use underneath the heat ex-changers of the engine to support the engine/trans, for a real stable platform. Then after I have the engine free I put about a 24" long 4x6 on my floor jack and placed that right in front of where the trans. enters the car diagonally and jacked the car off the engine and then lowered the motorcycle jack with the engine and trans and rolled the engine out from underneath the car. The lowered the floor jack with the back of the car onto jack stands.
Flat concrete, floor jack, motorcycle jack, some hand tools, and a few hours. going back was the reverse and took me about three hours.
I love these cars
