AMS offers the industry’s most comprehensive lineup of medium-duty clutch release bearings, including comprehensive coverage on Japanese applications. Each bearing is engineered to exact O.E.M. specifications using the highest quality materials, offering the ultimate in load carrying capability and operational characteristics. Some of the latest style O.E.M. release bearings now utilize a composite plastic assembly. We insist, however, on using the O.E.M. steel design in older applications, rather than the less expensive composite retrofit bearings that are now available. Although these composite replacements may meet dimensional requirements, they can’t withstand the temperatures commonly encountered under moderate to heavy use like snow removal, towing, and hauling heavy loads.
