Anyone ever done it?

Anyone think it's a bad idea to try?

It's certainly worth a try. If it works, you can always get a bushing machined to take the place of the washers and give more support to the slave because you have quite a bit of spring pressure. Watch your freeplay though. You need some between the fingers and the bearing, or it will cause trouble later on.

Like amc, I am familiar with a Liberty four speed in a drag car. We've got multiple thowout bearings of different dimensions, plus adjustable linkage. What you're talking about accomplishes the same thing as a longer throwout bearing.
