Clutch & Flywheel Inspection Tips

Got the Trans out right now being rebuilt. Clutch has roughly 20-25k on it. So while I am waiting on my trans I want to give the clutch and flywheel a good look over. Not exactly sure what to look for. Pointers, Tips, Specs are appreciated..

if the surface of the clutch wheel it flat or almost flat, while your in there i would swap out the whole kit 130$, or if the fingers look bent or beat up replace it. As for the flywheel if the teeth are not chipped then don't worry about it. Just be careful with grease and dirt around the clutch and flywheel.

10-4,

From what I have been told in the past for the flywheel think of it as a brake rotor. The surface should not have cracks, deep scratches or gouges.

Nor should it have discolored spots (blueing, etc) that indicate a warp.

The clutch contact surface should dry & smooth, too.
