Anytime anything is that far apart, replace all that is known to wear,
like the pilot bearing, throw out bearing, but, to do the rear main
seal, the flywheel has to go.  If mileage isn't up there, and the bell
houseing area is clean, i wouldn't bother with the seal. I'm almost 200k
on my turbo engine, and my NA engine had 165.  clean as a whistle!
