Apparently the throw out bearing is sort of a rod through the center of the clutch disk which moves in or out. Before demonstrating the action with her hands she warned me that she was going to make an obscene gesture :-)LOL - Actually, the throwout bearing is a sliding bushing (more or less) that is levered by a pronged rod that connects to the clutch pedal mechanically or by way of a hydraulic cylinder actuation. It's not a shaft, but rather rides on the transmission's input shaft and depresses against the pressure plate's fingers or diaphragm when you depress the clutch pedal, serving to retract the pressure plate from the clutch's friction surface...kind of hard to explain... Her warning of an obscene gesture seems pretty accurate, if not a very good attempt at adding humor... Sounds like you're in good and honest hands... No pun intended.
