So thats like 1.25 mm a side wear. How far from the rivets is it. I'm just asking silly questions for curiosity lol.

There are no such thing as silly questions; only stupid avoidable mistakes.

I used to teach computer maintenance to people who had been long term unemployed. I normally told the students on the first day that there "were no stupid questions; just stupid, avoidable mistakes" (as well as a lot of other things). If they did not know something, ask. On one occasion when a timid student had asked a question somebody else (who thought he knew a lot) said something like "What a stupid question". I asked this student to then answer the question that the timid student had asked, and waited while he did so. Fortunately (for this situation) the explanation was wrong, and I was able (using our training materials) to produce the correct answer. The good thing was that the know-it-all then apologised to both the timid student, and myself (for wasting our time), and the whole class did well that course.

A good way off the rivets Davie and all grooves still visible...

You ask away, it's your car and I'm very happy to answer... As said, no question is silly :D

I'll leave the old clutch in the boot if you want so you can see it with your own eyes.. Can't do that with the brake pads as already binned them..

I was just wondering really how far the clutch would had gone if the bearing hadn't seized.

200K is not unusual at all for those clutches Davie...

It was a bit of bad luck really...

It's just what happens with cars, more so older ones. They are machines, and they can wear out and break no matter how well looked after. Can't predict or legislate for it.

Your temps must be better down there Jim? Nice and dry here but a cold east wind which would chill you under a car.

Yesterday was a lovely spring day down here Lexi :D Not tremendously warm though but sunny... Needed my little beanie hat on...

Today it's cloudy but very mild...

I'll be taking a bit of time off work this week to crack on with the job... Which days I work will depend upon the weather..

It's a freezingly cold day up here on the northeast coast. We must be 6 weeks behind the rest of the country up here and beyond!

Freezing here too, with a good spread of mist. Not clutch changing weather.
