Is it okay to...

Recommended Posts

Depends why you are replacing them. Did you measure and confirm thickness? Did you inspect the steels for flatness? Did you check the springs free length? Replacing based solely on age does not make sense.

But the vague response to a vague question is 'Yup, age (in days/years) does not matter'

It does if the metal plates are steel. If aluminum, I would replace the whole package. Just my opinion.

They make aluminum plates? Seems like they would wear out with a quickness.

They do wear out faster, although they are grabbier and lighter producing less of a flywheel effect.

It was a vague question and I was looking for just a vague answer... But what you are saying is that if the circumstances are correct, it is a yes? My opinion was not based on age, but the feel of my clutch before I took the engine off.
