  Look for blue, scoring or "hard spots."  Unless it's been slipping or has 
obvious hard spots, it should just need a quick change and be fine.  Be sure 
and inspect the pushrod tip, the hardened point it presses on, the pushrod seal 
and bushing as well.  The "push plate's" hard pressure point can come loose 
which will wear the end of the pushrod.  A worn bushing will let the seal leak, 
which will put gear oil right into the new disk.
  Just did a clutch on the Subadon't.  It was slipping yet the flywheel still 
looked great.  :-)
