On assembly with 3 clutches in the intermediate it ck'd .100 clearance. I installed an extra steel and it's a tight .030. Is this enough clearance or will I have problems?

Thats a bit tight but will work. I like them a little looser. Would be nice if we had some .100" steels for that location. The other option is you can jack up the piston by making a spacer to go under it and extend it out past the spring retainer. A low reverse clutch is either .090 or .100 depending on which one you use and fits in that spot as a spacer. Then if its too tight , you can machine the piston.

What about removing friction material from one side of 2 friction plates and putting them back to back. Anyone tried this??

I've tried the extra steel, look at original post for clearances.
The L/R clutch behind the piston has had the friction material scraped off already.
What is the problem with 2 frictions back to back with the sides that face each other scraped?

But remove the one under the piston, then add an extra steel.

The L/R friction behind the piston has had the friction material scraped off of both sides.
There is a wave/cushion plate at the top of the stack. Stack has 3 steel, 3 friction and the wave plate.
What if anything is bad about scraping 2 Int. frictions and placing them together to make 1 thick friction. This is mentioned in the Sessions book.

I don't think you read my earlier post.If you had used the clutch for a shim as I suggested, you would have the proper clearance and be onto another project by now.

yes, please. This has gotten way complicated for a simple deal.

HUH??? I've repeated that I do have a clutch installed as a shim with the friction scraped off of both sides of it.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

OK, easy enough to find another clutch. I've always scraped the clutch I put behind the int piston.
What would be the downside to the 2 int clutches with 1 side scraped off of each?
