I have my clutch together, and need to know how close the throw out bearing should be to the pressure plate. please help

Your T.H. bearing should have some clearance between it and the clutch fingers, just enough so the bearing will make contact only when the clutch pedal is depressed..... Jim

is it stock clutch linkage or hydraulic throw out bearing? some hyd, manufactures recommend that the bearing just touch the fingers, never made much sense to me,but always did as they recommended and no problems.

typically you should leave from .100" to .187" between clutch fingers and bearing .... this allows for wear on discs (which in turn reduces the gap) and ..... some clutches rely on centifical force to increase clamping at higher RPM's (which moves fingers closer to bearing when this is occuring).
