The clutch shaft gets slid forward while he gets the disks & slave cyl. out of the way, and that's the perfect tool to align the clutch. Just slide the actual driveshaft backwards (relative to the car), into it's normal position, and wiggle things around while you're doing it. Once it's driven into the pilot (ahem) bearing, everything is situated right, and he can tighten the pressure plate down. To use one of the alignment tools (which, you're right, is essential for any other clutch job), you'd have to remove the radiator to get the driveshaft out, to get the tool in... Dave Hinz
