I agree with Titanium. That mileage is a lot for any original clutch part. When you replace the clutches in these cars at these ages, you need to replace several things at a minimum.

Pilot bearing (and probably rear main seal "since you're there")
Clutch kit (disc, pressure plate, throw-out bearing)
.... and other assorted bits including any driveshaft components (giubo, centering guide sleeve, center support bearing) that are unbolted to get the trans out, any while-you're-there trans & shifter seals/bushings etc....

white46m54, do you know what your mech replaced? You do not want that flywheel to explode.
