True, it may be fine without it. Mine went about 200K miles and then got noisy - unfortunately, I'd just been in there doing the disks 50000 miles previous. It's barely more work to do the slave cyl. while you're in there, and it might save you re-doing the job a year or three later. Also, the cost difference isn't all that much. It's entirely up to the person doing it, but I'm thinking that if I ever get in that neighborhood again, I'll do them all together again. > I've changed three clutches (2x900, 1x99, all 1983 models) and in none > of these cases did I have to bleed the hydraulics.
