On my '87 there was no "snap ring" to hold the TOB to the pressure plate. The TOB fit's inside the pressure plate, situated so that the "ears" are sticking outward. When the tranny is bolted to the engine, you actually need to turn the TOB so that the ears engage with the clutch fork (inside the tranny bell housing). On the tranny there are a coule of inspection holes around the bellhousing that you can use to help turn the TOB ears - using a large/long screw driver. The ears on the TOB and the points on the fork are sort of wedge shaped so that when they mate togther, there is enough tension to keep the TOB in place.
back in the saddle: '95 993 - just another black C2
