Bending pressure plate back?

Couple nights ago I just got my clutch done went to fire it up and it was grinding. I look and my slave cylinder pushed my throw out bearing fork too far and the fork is all bent and cracked. My question is: Can I bend the fins back on the pressure plate without having any problems?


I'll be pulling the tranny out within the next 2 days and I'll grab some pictures.

I mean the fins on the pressure plate. The fork is pretty much junk.

I don't think I would reuse that plate.

Well i replaced the pressure plate and the clutch with a ceramic one from NAPA. Hopefully will last longer than the other one, put in a year ago.

Re: Bending pressure plate back?

Good luck. For the past few years my opinion of napa is about the same as the discount parts stores. A few months ago a bought new rotors for my 99 from napa and guess what? on the box was "MADE IN CHINA". The same box, label as the ones from Auto Zone. I'm starting to use oem from dealer more often. I opened a parts acct at a local Ford dealer with a connection inside and my pricing is about the same as the discount stores and napa. It's hard to get quality unless you go oem nowdays. Or aftermarket which can get spendy.

From your avatar you might want a good aftermarket one!!!!
