Wd45 pressure plate

My old cletrack has a wd45 engine and has been a outstanding machine to plow snow with. However it has been very hard to get into forward and reverse gear. It just wanted to grind (not good) . Has been like this for some time. I tore into it this weekend expecting to find Bad pilot bearing. After getting tore down I have found one of the pressure plate finger bolts with jam nut had came loose. I m assuming that this would let pressure plate put just slight pressure on clutch causing shaft to turn not allowing it to slip into gear. I will be replacing pressure plate, clutch, pilot bearing and throw out bearing soon. How do I adjust the fingers on-pressure plate? And how can I make sure this won t happen again. My bellhousing does not have any kind of inspection hole of any kind.

Measure the finger height of the two correct fingers and write it down. The new/reman pressure plate finger height should not be more than they were and probably up to 1/4" less depending on the wear of your old parts compared to the new parts. When you just get the engine back in place with 2 bolts tight, check your clutch pedal and see how it feels. Nut and bolts are known for coming loose when they weren't tightened properly. Not a big issue.

Always opt for the 9-spring Pressure plate...the original may have been 6 spring....9 spring is better..
