Installing a new clutch in my 88 Camaro. I have
a Centerforce Gold clutch/pressure plate that I
bought back in 1993 (just getting around to it).
On the spring fingers of the pressure plate, there
appears to be a bunch of counter weights near
the tips where the throwout bearing would contact
it, and some retainer rings holding them in place.
I wonder what this is , and if it is needed, or if its
just some shipping deal to keep the spring fingers
from getting smashed during shipping or something.
