3. Ring gear spacer for 3.3L using "flat" pressure plate + release bearing extension.
4. Release bearing extension, billet stainless steel.
5. Release bearing for '78-'88 {930.116.080.80}.
6. New pressure plate & flywheel bolts, new "O"rings, new main seal, new "3-bolt"pilot bearing.
7. New O.E.M. flywheel.

All bolted right up and simply works perfectly.

The photo of the release bearing in the pressure plate appears to be correctly installed...but is it the correct release bearing????

Yes, that is what I got, except I resurfaced my flywheel. How would I know if it was the correct release bearing? What would be the difference if it was wrong? I did ask Chris if it was possible that the wrong parts were sent and he said he was sure they were correct for my car. I guess parts could be defective (warped, bad bearing, etc.), but boy would that be bad luck, huh?

I keep going back to the fact that my old clutch did the EXACT same thing. I am thinking that whatever is wrong destroyed my old friction disc due to dragging and it isn't fixed, whatever it is.

I nearly resigned to pulling the motor this weekend...
