Here are the directions I was able to find. Let me know if they help.

Before servicing the vehicle, remove or disconnect the following: Negative battery cable Clutch hydraulic system master cylinder from the clutch pedal Starter Hydraulic coupling at the transmission Transmission from the vehicle

Mark the assembled position of the pressure plate in relation to the flywheel to aid during reassemble.

Loosen the pressure plate and cover attaching bolts evenly until the pressure plate springs are expanded Pressure plate and cover assembly and the clutch disc from the flywheel Pilot bearing, only if replacing

To install: Position the clutch disc on the flywheel so that the Clutch Alignment Shaft tool T74P-7137-K can enter the clutch pilot bearing and align the disc.
When reinstalling the original pressure plate and cover assembly, align the assembly and flywheel according to the marks made during the removal operations.
Install or connect the following: Pressure plate and cover assembly on the flywheel, align the pressure plate and disc, and install the retaining bolts that fasten the assembly to the flywheel. Torque the bolts to 15-25 ft. Lbs. (21-35 Nm) in the proper sequence. Remove the clutch disc pilot tool Transmission into the vehicle Starter Coupling by pushing the male coupling into the slave cylinder Hydraulic clutch master cylinder pushrod to the clutch pedal Negative battery cable

Bleed the hydraulic clutch system.

Tighten the bolts gradually in the correct sequence to avoid warping the pressure plate
