The Omega spring is as was in the car. The trans had a clunk in it, the synchros were shot, so I pulled it apart. The source of the clunk turned out to be the stuffed rubber centre - it was driving directly onto the lugs rather than the rubber shock. Replaced the centre disc with a spring one, did synchros, and changed some ratios. Now the pressure plate feels like it is already loaded (my guess). The cable actually has a bit of slack in it - I was expecting it to be tighter with a new friction plate (altho the old one was not very worn). This suggests the pressure plate is already somewhat extended. and might explain the limited travel - not much further to go. But if this is so, I'm buggered as to why.
Has anyone installed a 930 pressure plate without these tabs? Are they important?
I made up a centering tool on the lathe. The plate centered up well.
