Any advice greatly appreciated before we have to spend big!
We tried to cross ref the countach throw out bearing(tob) with Porsche with no success. The closest one was a 1989 930(911 Turbo) but unfortunately it didn't fit. We even wanted to modify the 930 tob but that was not possible. A lot of Countach parts are being discontinued by Lamborghini so we bought a couple of them so we have the tob in stock.
We also have a Countach clutch that lasts 300% longer than a stock clutch and it's smoother than a stock clutch. Our clutch also has a 30% lighter clutch pedal pressure so it makes it easier to drive around with lighter clutch pedal.
Valentino Balboni drove one our customer's 1989 Countach that had our clutch and he loved it. You can read about here.
