    e1978 shovelhead throw out bearing config ?

     Throw out bearing question:  I have an oil slinger, 2 thrust washers, waffer type bearing and a clip for the end of the push rod.  Can someone help me with the order that these are re-installed.  I searched everywhere to try to find the correct placement, I even got out my old panhead manual, nothing specfic in anything I have.  

    Thanks,.. Granpa

     The slinger goes on first. There are 2 flats that corispond to 2 notches on the clutch pushrod.  Then thrust washer, bearing, thrust washer, clip.

     Here's a scan from my service manual. It covers both the old style throwout bearing, and the wafer bearing.
