Not a 69, but it may apply as well.
Info gathered from 68 Chasis Service Manual; "When the total disc thickness is less than 0.965" for the 1" thick disc, or 1.215" for the 1" thick disc, it should be replaced".
Some applications I've seen, have the minimum thickness value engraved somewhere around in the disc. hope this helps.
