            im pretty sure new clutch plate are roughly around 3-4mm thick from the rivet, ive replaced plenty of clutches but never really noticed exactly how thick a new clutch plate is.

            2.8 mm is still ok, but since you've got the box out already...
            does your clutch pedal pulsate? was your clutch slipping? why did you remove it in the first place?

            personally i'd replace.

            hope this helps, Martin

                evening pajero 96,
                as you have the engine out I too would replace the clutch, but in saying that as long as the old clutch was not slipping(which I doubt, unless oil contamination)then there is nothing stopping you re-use the old one, once they are down to the rivets is when they start slipping and chewing your flywheel, I mean 2.8mm could last another 5 years depending on use/abuse.

                  Thank you SWB Andy.There was nothing wrong with my clutch before removal and the plate is in good condition and clean and also dry .Pressure plate in good nick and flywheel is ok to .Thrust bearing turns quiet and runs smooth .Spigot is like new so i think im all good to go .Just gotta wait now for schnitzels reply as i said i would do then decide from there what to do .Thank you ,Trev.

                    if you have the engine out its certainly a good time to replace the clutch unit gear as you really don,t want to have to pull the box out later to replace the clutch etc.

                        Overall thickness will probably vary from brand to brand. It's the amount of material left before rivet head contacts pressure plate / flywheel that you need to look at, and from what you have posted it appears to have plenty of meat left on it. I'd probably just get a mech to have a look at it and give you an evaluation. The bit you can't see is if pressure plate is weak or diaphragm is about to crack and collapse. More clutch failures usually occur from pressure plate collapse rather than the clutch plate worn out .............. unless you use the clutch pedal as a foot rest that is ??
                        As Dolphin has said box out I'd put a new one in as it saves a heap of work later.
