Centerforce brand throwout bearing gone bad

I have a Centerforce clutch set in my 258/T176 drivetrain. The throwout bearing is going on vacation! I am just wondering if I have to use a Centerforce brand throwout bearing, or can I buy one of the "regular," 3-finger throwout beairings off the shelf? I don't know if they are compatible.

Thanks.

Take your TO bearing to NAPA, and compare them.
FWIW: My '85 was OEM with a diaphragm clutch, Not a 3-finger.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, it is still in service at the moment. I want to pick one up so I can change it out and be back on the road. Is that what you call these clutches... diaphragm clucthes??
