well after i blew my tranny and had it ouit i figured i might as well do the rear main on my engine at the same time cuz it was starting to leak a little. when i pulled the cluth this is what i found...... it was working fine and im not sure what cause's this as i have never had a standard before. i think the clutch disc needs to be replaced but i dont know if the pressure plate and flywheel have to be. any help would be appreciated.

The bluing is "hotspots" on your flywheel, pretty normal if this is Your 1st standard and for a for a 4X4. You should get It Re-surfaced from a local machine shop, faily cheap, 'bout 40 bucks maybe. I would also replace the clutch disc and Pressure plate. The clutch usually comes in a kit With a release bearing too. Depending on what kind of vehicle you got could be 120-300 bucks. I wouldn't pass up a opportunity to replace a worn clutch, while doing repairs to your rear main. It'll save you another teardown!!

What kind of truck??

no questions, swap it out. and have the fly wheel surfaced.

the blueing is VERY detrimental to holding ability.

Take your flywheel to Cronie on Ellis St. they can do it for you.

Phone for a prise first and let me now how much, I might be able to get you a better deal from them.

[stupid] and make sure the fly wheel is CLEAN. Brake clean that mofo, try to keep your dirty paws off of it.

for the effort it takes to do a clutch just replace as much as you can afford while you have it apart.
