Clutch fork to throwout bearing spring orientation

PostPost by: 1963Turnerjohn » Mon Dec 04, 2017 10:15 pm

I?m in need of confirmation on the ?throwout bearing to fork? spring orientation shown

I?ve included a picture of my setup -

Are the coiled springs setting in the proper orientation?

The workshop manual has an illustration showing how the springs fit with the more "closed" hook end to the bearing carrier, the more "open" end to the release arm - if that makes sense.
