No, you are spot on. I read that the same. The thing is...I never took out/off the flat seat as it was stuck to the assembly with oil. In other words, it stayed as the factory assembled it. **sigh** You are correct though. It is, as the manual says, judder spring, flat judder seat then... Surely that wouldn't be the reason my clutch failed so fast. would it? Hell, I will reassemble it tomorrow the way the manual says and see if it behaves differently. **note on that** the clutch just failed. The nut was secured with a lock tab and there was pretty extensive discoloring of 2 steel plates.
