My first clutch job in my life.

How do I know when the flywheel has to be replaced or machined?

The disc was worn to the rivets but they were worn down to the rivets only on the pressure plate side so the flywheel isn't scored.

Still, the clutch was slipping for about 30 miles or maybe 40 or 50 miles.

Here are some photos.

What do I look for to tell if the flywheel needs machining or replacement?

(If I replace it, what hints do you have to remove those flywheel bolts as I have only 3/8" chrome 12-point 14mm sockets, as my half-inch sockets are all six point and I don't have an impact wrench except the hand kind for a motorcycle).

I see heat cracks on the surface, but that is normal. The pictures don't show any large cracks or edge cracks and those are the biggest concern. Looks like you can have the flywheel machined without issue. The shop can tell you if they discover any flaws.

Make sure to clean the 12pt flywheel to crank bolts and apply red loctite when installing.

Do you have a puller for the pilot bearing or are you going to attempt the grease and bolt method?
