"So what pulls the actual pressure plate down when the TOB pulls on the fingers? Is the PP actually attached to the outside of the fingers? How is it attached because I didn't see any bolt or other ways to attach it."

I've never had one of these apart but the diaphragm spring is usually secured to the cover (the part that bolts to the FW) somehow out near the circumference with a pivot attachment then the circumference of the spring is held underneath a lip of some sort on the pressure plate itself. The geometry is such that a relatively large movement of the TOB acting on the spring fingers results in a very small movement of the circumference of the spring which pulls the plate away from the disc releasing the clutch. The setup has to be a little different on this since the TOB pulls on the fingers vs. normally pushing on them but the principle is the same. You deserve a medal after going thru this.
