Stuck need help

Got a few question with installing new clutch. When you have your pressure plate installed should you be able to have some play with your clutch plate. And how do you realign your transmission spline so your tranny is hooked back up on your engine?

The clutch kit should have come with a plastic alignment tool. If not stop where you are and get one.

Once the pressure plate is installed and torqued there should be no play in the clutch plate it should be stuck in place between the flywheel and the pressure plate.

^ like said above, only to include that the alignment tool (usually plastic and supplied with clutch kit) should be installed before you tighten the pressure plate down. You will have a little wiggle with the alignment tool and thats normal, you want to just try and center the alignment tool in the "play" of the disc before tightening down the plate.

Okay I used my alignment tool and tighten the pressure plate with it still in. So if done correctly the clutch disc won't be able to move inside of the pressure plate?

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.
