I agree with Winmutt that the flywheel and pressure plate should be resurfaced if possible. In my experience, one can decipher the current wear patterns on a used flywheel and have a pretty good idea if its flat. If its not flat, definately have it machined flat even if that means waiting to reinstall untill the funds become available. If it is flat, then resurface it yourself to remove the glazing. I've had success using a belt sander with around a 100 grit belt. I've heard of some folks using scotch brite pads on a die grinder. Either way you want to remove that glazing IMHO.
