"Normal" clutch life expectancy
I realize there are many variables regarding clutch life, especially on the LT. Assuming that the clutch hasn't been abused, the slave cylinder holds, engine seals dont leak,etc., are there any among us with substantial miles that have original clutches and other offending original parts that can potentially foul things?
I've turned a young 50,000 and wonder whether it would be foolish to do anything until a component wears/leaks, or should a pre emptive overhaul be performed at some point. I know sometimes if it aint broke don't fix it, with my luck I would do a rebuild and install a faulty slave cylinder. I would feel better however knowing that there are some high mileage clutches out there.
