Clutch - Change lines?

So I'm going to have the clutch done and I was wondering if changing the lines was easy. Kinda want the classic tube stainless ones but if it is a pain won't bother.

Also would my main rear seal leaking likely be the reason the clutch is failing?

Thanks

Barry,

The clutch can become contaminated with oil if the rear main leaks enough all at once or long enough over a period of time. What lines do you want to change? the flex line to the slave cylinder is easy to replace but there should be no need to change the hard lines.

Drain the fluid in the clutch system as just like brake lines, moisture will collect in the lines over time.

I wanted to change the hardlines to stainless but if there is no point I won't bother. The main rear has been leaking for awhile but not bad enough anyone told me to fix it.

Barry I don't think you ever gave specifics about your clutch issue. What exactly are the symptoms?

Mostly it slips in 5th on the highway. When you are going 70 it feels like its not getting even power. Rpm is consistent but it feels like crap. It probably would be fine for a long time but I want to take it on a long trip to that land rover wheeling event and I am worried it will burn up by the time I get there.

I assume you have made sure the push rod on the master is adjusted so that there is some play?

It is pretty hard for the main seal leakage to makes its way to the clutch.

It could just be worn out. Those are normal symptoms for a worn clutch.

Ha it's not a big deal. I do find it odd a clutch would only last 70k but I didn't own it the first 46 and I mark on the board has a new clutch at 60k milds

Barry's going to a wheeling event? That's almost unbelievable. He should come on the Utah trip in March.

Ha barely wheeling. I'm going to the owners event at the land rover driving school. I did it a few years ago in a range rover and know its not going to be crazy for my 90. My truck might get confused driving on dirt though. It has never seen it before.

If you have the clutch out, you're talking about a few mintues and $30 for a new rear main. Why not just do it, and do the cross-seals which I have come to assume from trolling this site is the real source of all our bottom end leaks.

That way when it still leaks you can know for sure that it is indeed a 18 year old british car, and accept that you're actually decreasing your oil change intervals b/c of your need to top it up.

I just did the oil pan. Transfer case and rear main are what I want to do now.
