clutch spring tension

Postby TJG » Thu Jun 27, 2013 6:22 pm

When the clutch is reinstalled onto the flywheel is there a specific tension of the springs, or is the tension simply set when the clutch and flywheel are tight together?

I will need to reinstall the fingers onto the clutch plate. Can I just hold the pieces together with C-clamps (compressing the springs) when I put the pivot pin for the fingers back in, or is the tension more precise?

I hope my question is clear.

If it's only the finger spring you may not need any devices to compress the spring.

Never had a pressure plate apart, so don't really know the answer. Suggest looking at the service manual.

Pressure plate springs are tested be for installation in to the pressure plate.
I have an excuse. CRS.
