    Commonly referred to as a throwout bearing "collar". Not sure I've ever seen them new though. Usually a JY/ebay piece.

    U can get this at autozone. I just checked awhile ago. I have a hairline crack on that collar sleeve. I think it's about $40. special order though. I decided to just weld mine.
    to take that bearing off you need a 1 1/4" socket and drive it thru.

    For future reference, here's an easy way to get that throwout bearing off:

    - Find a buddy
    - Put a large socket big around the same diameter as the collar in the cradle of a jack.
    - Put the collar over the socket with the bearing facing down.
    - Hold a large pipe wrench over the collar so that the ends of the crescent are resting on the bearing. Hold the pipe in place with one hand.
    - Have your buddy hold a long ass 2x4 vertically, one end on the back of the wrench, the other against a door frame
    - With your free hand, jack the whole contraption up against the door frame and the bearing pops right off

    There's no stress on the tabs of the collar because you're not pushing against it.
