What would be your choice for a throw out bearing?

Mine has a little over a thousand miles on it and it's shrieking like nobody business. I'm leaning towards NAPA and would hope some of you would chime in with your experiences. Also, if there's a Timken p/n any of you all have that would greatly help and be appreciated.
It's for a T-176.
Thx for the input

I'm pretty sure the one I was using came with the LuK clutch. Really odd that yours would be going bad after 1000 miles, makes me wonder if there wasn't something else going on in there - poor install, lots of oil, something wrong with the input shaft collar, etc.

If the throw out bearing level is adjusted too tight then the bearing itself would spin all the time and burn it up pretty quickly. There needs to be som play in the lever and the return spring properly installed.

I called NAPA and they brought one in from the DC. My man there opened up the box and “Made in USA” was printed on the bearing. I’m not going to assume that it’s a Timken but at least it didn’t say Hecho in China.
Good information on the linkage adjustments and pressure. I’ll take not of it’s adjustment during removal.
