Thin side? Left it right side of picture goes toward the engine
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
Left or right of pic

the flywheel is attached to the engine so the left side would get mounted to the flywheel

Should the next piece with all the "fingers" pinch the clutch plate between the flywheel and finger piece.

Meaning when I bolt the finger piece to the flywheel the clutch plate is pinched in between not being able to move

Does any of the clutch hiding need torge wrenched

the pressure plate should be torqued down to spec with a torque wrench or at least evenly if you do not have a torque wrench

33 ft lbs on the pressure place bolts
