If you are wearing these out at that rate, then your clutch bearing is out 
of alignment (hits on one side first - not squarely). Also, make sure you 
have reinstalled the spring clips the right way around. If these aren't 
right, the bearing will never seat correctly.

In a few weeks/months/years, I'll be re-assembling my 74 MG Midget
restoration project
and one thing that will need replacement is the clutch throwout bearing.  I
bought one
from Moss years ago, but it is another graphite ring.  Someone please tell 
there is an alternative?  One that lasts longer than these graphite rings (I
through two in less than 40,000 miles).

If there isn't one, is there something that I should do in re-assembly to
ensure the
longest service life for this part?
