Next is to install the clutch pressure plate. Make sure the arrows on the front of the pressure plate line up with the arrows on the clutch boss assembly

0_1511097166220_97.JPG

Get your clutch springs ready. If the length is 41.5mm or less they need to be replaced. I’ve got a set of Barnett Heavy Duty springs for mine

0_1511097180192_98.JPG

Install 2 springs with bolts and tighten them with a screw driver, but not all the way, because as you can see in the picture, the tabs on the clutch plates need to be aligned properly

0_1511097198198_99.JPG

To align the tabs on the clutch plates, slide on the clutch outer housing, and the ‘fingers’ on the housing will help align the tabs, you might need to turn/adjust some by hand to get it right.

0_1511097217336_100.JPG

Remove the clutch outer housing and tighten the 2 bolts. Install the remaining 4 bolts and then torque them all up to 6 ft lb
