Thanks for answering Cmyles.
Firstly, I hate this new style pressure plate. There is no area where one can use the clutch tool.
This saga began because I had to do a conversion from an automatic to a manual. Actually the vehicle is a late model 99/ B engine. So I grab the flywheel/clutch unit from a 92 900 turbo vehicle. The engine was out of the car. After taken off the plastic clutch cover, and noticing the weird pressure plate(Saab lever won't work) I banged the clutch slave off.
Long story short, I ordered a new clutch kit, with a Centric slave cylinder. I installed the spacer in the pressure plate. After truly wrestling and fighting for the units to go in; the pressure plate holes did not line up. It has been a long time. Ah 92 flywheels are different. I then replaced the used clutch pp and disc. I then noticed it was very easy to remove the spacer ring. Ahhrg, thinking it was due a damaged pp( from the banging). I ordered a new pressure plate last week ( with a deceptive image of the old style pp) I installed it last night. Much easier to install. Yet the same thing. I was able to remove the spacer ring with a little bit of effort.
Initially I planned to used the new clutch disc , but I noticed it was slightly smaller, so I installed the used. But inspecting the used one off the 92, it appeared in good shape.
Any help with this would be great Cmyles.
Also, how does one compress the fingers if the hydraulics aren't working with this later style pp. I thought of fabricating an attachment and removing the hook off the old Saab tool and replacing it with new attachment. There are holes on the pp housing. I thought of welding an adapter that would then bolt onto the Saab tool. Changing clutches aren't fun anymore.
