Yes, if it isn't centered, it will be difficult to get the trans lined up. It will not hurt anything once it is installed. I had a guy tell me that a clutch failed because the shop didn't align it properly- hmm, ok. I just can't deal with some people lol.

No, the big concern would be the pressure plate won't engage the clutch disc properly and distribute pressure evenly. It's a dicey proposition...but it can (and has) been done successfully many-a-time.

Huh?? The disc is floating- once you release pressure by pushing in the clutch, it doesn't matter where you centered the disc, it will "self center" itself. There is no such thing as aligning the disc on the pressure plate for proper operation, it is only for installing the trans. Or did I mis-understand what you typed?

yupper. Thanks for pointing that out...for some reason I was thinking of a time we lost a clutch when the pressure plate warped and pressed unevenly on the disc surface

think i'll have another.
