The "fingers" are you describe them, are what the release bearing presses on to remove the pressure from the clutch disc when you press the clutch pedal in. As you tighten the clutch disc, the fingers will move in. And with a new clutch disc, they will move in fairly far. As the clutch disc wears, the fingers will get higher and higher, eventually to the point of clutch slippage and thus needed replacement. So don't be too concerned if they seem to be almost flat....they still have enough room to release the clutch disc.

SOURCE: 1985 Nissan 300zx power steering hard

I'd love to help, but none of my service manuals show your car having variable assist power steering. Even '86 and '87 don't have it. The electrical connection you see at the pump, is a power steering pressure switch. All it does is tell the ecm that the engine is under load at idle when you crank the wheel hard and it bumps the idle up a bit so you don't stall the engine, but that's all it does. If you like, I can send you two wiring diagrams depicting the all underhood electronics, but I think you probably have a bad rack and pinion. Seems like a common problem from the small amount of checking I did.

SOURCE: what are the tightening torques of all clutch plate pressure plate flywheel bolts of 2279cc slant engine vauxhalls

I have some original manuals for the model somewhere and the Kent-Moore service tool for adjusting the valve clearances. There isn't much information in my general data book but the flywheel bolts are 66 Nm.

The clutch cover bolts do have a torque value but I don't have it to hand and have never used it or heard of anyone using it. Good sense will suffice.
The important thing is to tighten the cover bolts a little at a time evenly until tension is felt and then it is sufficient to "knip" them a little further. There should be a spring washer under each cover bolt head and it is important they and the bolts are all identical

Yes. As you tighten the pressure plate mounting bolts the fingers should move toward the pressure plate.

I have a 1994 F-250 xl, 5speed Manuel and its a gas job! I've only had it a few month and I've already had to change the release bearing 4 time(about once a month) why would the release bearing...


Release bearing are only supposed to work when you have your foot on the clutch pedal. If it keeps burning out then it is overworking. Some faults can be clutch pressure plate springs too strong. , Worn fingers on the pressure plate. No freeplay between clutch slave cyl and throwput arm. Faulty M/cyl or it can be as simple as driving with you foot resting on the clutch pedal instead of the foot rest

did you use a pilot spline to align the clutch and did you change the pilot bearing in the end of the crank. The clutch plate maybe interfering with the pressure plate if it is not lined up.

There is pressure on the arm from your pressure plate. When you put the slave cylinder back on, you want it to be just touching the arm, not pushing it. The push comes from the slave cylinder when you depress the clutch.

How do you change the clutch and pressure plate?


Easily. Remove the gear box, the roller bearing is fitted to the box, so yoou dont have to worry. The clutch and plate is fixed to the engine held in with hex nuts, you'll need allan keys to remove them, remove the bolts and the clutch and pressure plate will fall away. Take the new one from the box, being carefull not to contaminate with grease or oil that is on your hands, fit the pressure plate into the clutch assembly and line up to the engine and loosly tighten up so the pressure plate will move with a little resistance. This is where the fun starts. Get your socket set handle and push it through the housing into the engine. Centralise the pressure plate as accurately as you can. Offer the gearbox slowly to the clutch and try to push it home. The pressureplate should have enought movement in it to move slightly to allow the gear box to fit. Once fitted, slowly and levelly remove the box, then tighten all of the clutch housing into place. Refit the box, tighten and go for a cup of coffee to congratulate yourself! The only other adjustments you have to make are to the clutch cable. Loosen the lock nut, loosen the adjuster bolt, tighten the adjuster bolt until the cable becomes taught, depress the clutch and you should feel the clutch release. Tighten the locknot and that's it. Hope all goes well, any problems let me know any problems let me know and I'll help. Regards, Dave.
