Default Consensus on best Throwout bearing

Getting ready to re-install my 8BA. Whose & where to buy best Throwout bearing? On engine diss-assembly I noticed existing Throwout Bearing was starting to throw a bit of green grease onto clutch & pressure plate. On original build 2000 miles ago I purchased from Macís 6 yrs ago.

That bearing should be good for another 78,000 miles.

Suggest you contact Fort Wayne Clutch and see if they have any Aetna bearings in stock. They are made in the USA, Livonia MI. That is where I got mine. I will check & see if I still have the box, as it has their part number on it which is different than the Ford #.

I would not recommend Aetna bearings. The one I purchased here just recently spun far to easily, I dont think it had any grease in it, it looked rather cheap . I even sent an email to them - no reply. I'd go for at least a National bearing [should still be USA made]. Mike or Mac should knows what good.

SKF throwout bearing: N1087
Bearing Identification Number: 2065 (works for cross-referencing with any mfr)

Never had a problem with SKF

We sell the Aetna bearing (timken) as most prefer that brand, but the bearibn we sell I prefer (plus it’s cheaper and USA) is one made by bearing technologies out of Ohio.
