You can't put the disk in backwards and bolt up the pressure plate. The
center of the disk is raised about an inch on the rear facing side to house
the springs. It has to face the pressure plate. I've put a lot of things
together backwards over the years, but assembling a clutch is almost
foolproof (as long as you remember to torque the bolts...)

Y'all have me a bit nervous. I replaced my old pressure plate with a
diaphragm plate during the rebuild and haven't adjusted the system, so I
can't say whether the new clutch rod will be long enough. Guess I'll have to
get out and get under tonight. I'm gonna hate to have to pull the engine
again; I had the same cross member problems reported by a couple other guys
