The throw out bearing rides on the guide tube on the tranny

It looks like you have it between the pressure plate and the clutch disk. The face of the bearing for the throw out bearing rides against the fingers of the pressure plate.

The TOB sits in the proper place. When you tighten the pressure plate it will cause the fingers to move and tighten to the TOB. The TOB is located with the tightening of the PP.

Of course, thats not right. Where is your thrust washer and spring washer. Those are what connect the bearing to the pressure plate fingers. Missing parts. Consult your Bentley.

There are 5 or 6 parts depending on how you count them that work to lock the bearing to your pressure plate. They usually require a short "procedure" to get them apart, at least thats whats done with my 87 carrera.

Your are mistaken - this is NOT the case with the 930 set-up!

Then my bad. Just looked to be a shadow on the fingers where other parts may have been. Geometry wise, wouldn't seem you could close the fingers (reduce the diameter) enough to establish a strong lateral grip to the bearing without other parts. I obviously have no knowledge of the 930 specific set-up. PP looks virtually same as mine. Good luck.
