Clutch Pressure Plate Faillure

Post by Jim505 » April 15th, 2008, 1:50 pm

I was just putting on a pressure plate and as I got it aligned about half of one of the heavy springs fell out. Kinda of ruined my day. Has anybody got any experience as to why one of these springs breaks. Do I need to do something to prevent it happening again??

I have a NOS clutch plate and pressure plate if anyone is interested. Not rebuilt, New Old Stock still in the Ford boxes.
