I found the quote below in a post back in May. I have run into a similar problem in my rebuild, .120" clearance in a 3-friction clutch. My question is how to get down to .040" clearance? Oversize steels are .090", so three new steels would reduce clearance by only .066" (.022"x3).
The other thoughts I had were to shim under the piston if possible. Or add an oversize steel under the wave plate (between the wave plate and the first steel) and use three standard steels in the clutch to get .030" clearance. Any comments?

What is the clearance in the intermediate (second gear) clutch?
I have rebuilt a few that had a clearance of .125 and thats unacceptable so i take it down to around .040.
This can usually be checked just by dropping the pan and looking at the clutches through the hole.
It could also be a cut in the piston seal.
