1984 190D 5-speed Transmission Bearing Failure

I have been working on a 1984 190d 2.2 5 speed that I purchased a while back. When I bought it the PO said that the clutch was gone and that it needed to be replaced. The engine was also smoking like crazy but I went ahead and purchased it because the price was right.

I finally got around to pulling the engine/transmission earlier this week. It seems like somebody ran gasoline instead of diesel in the engine. As I unmarried the engine/trans. I was shocked at what I found inside the bellhousing. My question is what should I do to check this thing out further? I know that Stretch has a detailed post and I will take a look at it, but I am just curious if I should be concerned about anything else or if I can just install a new center bearing and continue on. Thanks.

I think that I am just going to clean it up and replace all of the main components. Throwout bearing, pressure plate, and clutch.

Sounds like a plan.

take a good hard look at the clutch fork for damage because--



This one was cut pretty badly, but also bent. Make sure yours isn't bent unusually in any way. I had welded this up and reinstalled, and I had a big difference in clutch engagement pedal height, as in everything took place less than an inch from the floor

For what its worth, I put the 4-speed that went with the fork right into service with no issues. I think you should be fine.

Thanks for the input. I'll be sure to check that out.

Looks like your throw out bearing seized and wore through one of the pressure plate fingers. It would work with a seized throw out bearing....it would make a funny noise and would not last long before a failure like this.
