How many miles can I expect out of a clutch?

depends on how you drive. i had one truck that still had the original clutch in it when i sold it at 255,000 miles.
and i also had trucks come into the shop needing clutches at 45,000 miles

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

I know this is a little old but very relevant because cycling my push rod helped.

I have a 1999 v10 5 speed, removing slave pushing rod in 5 times and allowing return spring to return push rod worked on mine as well. My push rod had enough free play to let my throw out bearing squeal just a little when clutch released because it didn't have enough pre-load. Trying to figure out what the cycling of the push rod is doing to take up the push rod slack since it has an internal return spring. very interesting and I really wish I had my old slave to cut apart and see how in the world that helped.
