Gonna pick up a clutch kit at autozone, so should I grab a flywheel? I don't have any shuddering, but my slave is leaking... Any advice?

Thanks 84BB2

My '94 has 300,000 and I haven't replaced the flywheel, brake fluid won't hurt it, rivets rubbing would hurt it

So without gouges or excessive wear, I'd probably be ok? Anybody got wear specs on the flywheel?

If its not glazed over, gouged out or has a lot of heat markings, i wouldn't worry. I've always just hit them with some emery cloth to break up the surface and never had any chatter or slipping issues reusing the old ones. If its any of the above tho i would just replace it.
