Nice contribution KZ!

if you are retarded like me, clean up a nice spot on the pressure plate with some degreaser, then grab a permanent marker and write down the proper stack height. no more running back to the computer to double check!!!

good idea with marking the pressure plate.
I put this in the racing area because this section is kinda dead, it will be on page 1 for a long time, plus the title should turn up when someone is searching for clutch info

Good idea... There's a lot more threads that need to be collected into a "Tech Section"... I'm talking to the home office about getting that set-up...

Till then, I'll make this a sticky!!

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

i've never used one. just some wiggling to get it out, then put in the needle bearing/cage with the basket, and the collar last.
