So how is the throw out bearing supposed to spin? Is there supposed to be any play? I read its supposed to spin like a skateboard wheel but it stops spinning before i even let go of the bearing and will bind if i try to spin it while partially engaged and i can feel a click and a small woosh sound if i do it right but its not leaking at all

It's bad.

It should spin free - "like a skateboard wheel" is a good analogy.

Definitely shouldn't have any clicking/grinding.

well i managed to get the bearing out of the flywheel but noticed something odd.. there was another bearing behind the one in the flywheel. like the shop just didnt remove it and shoved another one in there.
i had to take the flywheel off in order to get the other one out. glad i did though because i noticed a couple cracks. anyway time to put it back together

Yep - there should be only (1) pilot bearing inside the flywheel.
