My throwout bearing failed, so I pulled the transmission to replace it along with the slave cylinder. I was surprised that it failed so quickly. It was replaced 35K miles ago.  I also removed the clutch from the flywheel to replace to pilot bearing and found what appeared to be a thick layer of powered rust.  Is this normal???

Steel flywheel?  I'd say Yes, that's normal.  The clutch creates heat cycles which  probably caused that rust.

Here's my stock Luk clutch which has about 62,000mi on it when I removed it from my Roe car.  Same rust dust around the center.
