How to remove clutch fingers

How are they removed from the pressure plate - shop manual is unclear. I do have a hydraulic press. Thanks, Gert

    Clamp or use your press to hold the unit together and remove the 3 large nuts.  Unclamp slowly, pay attention to where the springs are as some are double.  If it hasn't been apart before, you can rotate the parts to a new wear surface for the fingers.

    Thank you, Uncle Josh - I am looking to see if I can disassemble the plate to provide clutch fingers for Old Fogey UK - One pressure plate has 3 nuts the other has 6 - hoping fingers will be same for many years of the 10 inch clutch. Gert

    Be careful, there are several types of fingers, Some longer than others.
    Courtesy Man, doe not remove the three outer nuts. only the ones on top.

    Please do you have more information on clutch finger length, Les ?

    With help here I have successfully disassembled a used 10 inch pressure plate and fingers in length appear about 5 and 3/4 length. I know a 9 inch plate has different part numbers and likely are shorter. If correct I will ship to David (Old Fogey UK) Gert

    Oops I meant to say length is about 4 and 3/4 - sorry.
