The assembly seems to move freely. I have watched it from underneath.
But I am very unclear whether I can just replace the friction plate. I did post a query on this board earlier, and got no clear answer. I attached a note to my order to Pelican to send anything else I needed for the swap. They just sent the spring friction plate. It certainly is thinner - it has no rubber centre. But I managed to convince myself this is not an issue. The throw out bearing pulls away from the friction disc. The only concern I had was whether the throwout bearing could fall into the gap in the pressure plate (while I was installing). But once I had tightened the pressure plate up, the fingers had moved to the point they were locating the throwout bearing and it could not fall anywhere. So, I am stumped as to what the problem is here.
Can't proceed any further.
