That was high 170,000 on a stock zetec clutch. Still like left in it. But you can see heat hasn't been kind to it. Didn't slip though.

Only 5K.
I did 8K for months and 7K for most of it's life.

I am not nice to parts by any means.

From the looks of that clutch, mine should last until the engine goes out. I drive like a grandpa most of the time.
