bumb, what way is the clutch suppose to face the fly wheel

---------- Post added at 06:39 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:17 AM ----------

So set the trans down and pulled te pressure plate and clutch down and thought I'd see if the clutch would slide on the trans shaft so I tried it the right way first(thick part towards trans) wouldn't go on at all so I flipped it(thick part towards flywheel) and is slid right on.. So does this mean ttr sent me the wrong clutch?

the alignment tool is a black plastic looking gear type that splines against the flywheel. its to keep the clutch, flywheel, and input shaft aligned.

the clutch faces towards the flywheel along with the marcel springs, torsion springs facing outwards, then pressure plate fingers facing towards transmission.
Before all of this, inspect/replace/re-surface your flywheel.
After all installed, make sure you have all the bell housing bolts torqued down properly along with all the internal bolts. Should move smoothly once pedal is depressed. Check linkage if you have any shift problems.

The ky stage 2 from ttr
ah, so its not like centerforce, exedy, or ACT. I know competiton clutches are ok. Stage 2? Are you planning on running forced induction or making over 300hp? Cause if you just do simple bolt-ons, waste of money and short lifespan of clutch. Its all good now, lesson learned.

i do have force induction im supercharged and i do plan on going to smaller pulleys
Oh ok, stage 2 is perfect then :) Back in the day, we didnt have stage 2 as an option, it was Stage 1,3,4,5 only and then exedy came out with the dual friction plates.

If it wont fit on snuggly, then they may have sent you the wrong clutch kit by mistake, its common these days, RMI it.
