Uprated clutch

Good evening all.

A little help please, my question is about Paddocks uprated three piece clutch that i have purchased. I have heard good things about these before, they give you more clearance or something similar.
My query is that i am concerned about the release bearing, if you shake it it rattles around. The inner race seems to have quite a bit of sideways movement. I have done a number of big saloons and small chassis cars and all those bearings were lovely and tight.
Has anybody fitted one or know somebody that has? it is quite a big job to do then find out it all makes a racket.
I do have a normal brand new heavy duty one that i could use as an alternative but wanted to use the correct one which came with the kit.

Many thanks
Des.

Hi Bruce many thanks to you.

I had already spoken with Paddocks and they were very helpful, the guy even compared it to another one they had in stock and that rattled too.
I don't know if this is built into the design and thus giving more potential for movement.

I have spoken with Paddocks again today and they really are most helpfull indeed.

I would be unable to use my heavy duty one with this uprated kit so quite rightly this will have to go back for further investigation/replacement.

Many thanks
Des.
