No I wasn’t but I changed the clutch and rebuilt the tranny While I had it out to repair that shifter pawl. The only bearing I did not replace was the throw out bearing. I got everything back together and working but I’m having issues getting the clutch adjusted perfectly. I may have a long cable I’m running out of threads. Also when finding the sweat spot I have a hiccup in the threads. Every turn from beginning to end feels like your hitting the rod.Yep, just rides inside. It is actually 3 pieces. The rod, a short piece connected to the release plate on the clutch side, and a short piece connected to the oil slinger/throw-out bearing on the other end. That's the piece next to the dipstick in your last pic. You can see where the rod joins up with the recess in the short piece on each end.

Here is a diagram if you don't have the manual.
As for the throw out bearing, were you having any problems with it before?
