'75 240d Clutch Squeal

Hi, I'm sure this has been discussed before, but here it goes.

I have a 1975 240d (w115) w/ a 4 sp. When I push in the clutch peddle I get a loud squeal coming from the tranny. I'm suspecting the Throw out/ release bearing.

Being an organic vegetable farmer, I'm short on cash and have time to spend. Does it make sense to pull the tranny, checkout things and just grease that bearing, instead of doing a full clutch job? I've found a Luk brand kit for $180. I've installed a Luk in my Toyota and love it. Has anyone used one in a Benz?
