7. Support the pressure plate and clutch assembly by hand so that they do not misalign. With the marks aligned, install the clutch assembly to the oil pump assembly. Install the 30 mm shim (I).

8. Make sure that the clutch assembly and pressure plate are correctly installed. If the clutch assembly can be pushed down as in the figure, proceed to step 9. If not, return to step 5.

NOTE: If incorrectly installed, the clutch assembly may be damaged when excessive force is applied.
