> Any rivets/fasteners holding components together should be tight with no rattles detected.
> All components are clean and free from dirt or dust before assembly. 

Cover Assemblies:
> The fingers which the release bearing actuate against should not have any grooving from contact with the bearing.
> Once the cover assembly is bolted onto the flywheel, the fingers should all be an equal distance from the flywheel face.
> Pressure plates should be checked for coning and replaced when more than 0.15mm out of flat.
> Any part of the cover appears to have been worn or damaged. 
Racing Covers:
> The cover assembly should also be a good press fit against the 2.5mm step of the flywheel. 

Road Covers:
> The cover should be a good press fit against 3 Dowels onto the flywheel. 


Driven plates:
Driven plates should be replaced if showing:
> Signs of damage or wear.
> Minimum material thickness.

Flywheels:
> Should have a smooth, flat friction surface for the friction material of the driven plate to sit against. 
> Teeth around the circumferences of the flywheel should not be worn or damaged. 
> No sign of cracks to any part of the flywheel. 
> No heat distortion has taken place. (indicated by a blue colour)


Bearings:
