    Default Shovelhead clutch

    Just moved and lost my manual. I gotta get my bike back on the road. Who has a diagram or instructions for throw out bearing replacement.
    This is my kit. Click image for larger version.

    In this video Pacific Mike takes out the old style like yours, and puts in a new style. I used this video to learn how to install the old style like yours. It should help.

    From the book “How to Rebuild & Restore Classic Harley-Davidson Big Twins 1936-1964, page 181:

    Start by fitting the release finger in the case with its washer facing the bottom of the cover. Install the clutch release shaft into the case to hold the finger in place, and fit it with a washer and cotter pin. Doing this can be tricky, so take your time. With the clutch pushrod installed in the transmission mainsheet and its small end facing the cover, we’ll continue. Place the throw-out bearing in the cover. Using the clutch pushrod as a guide, slide the cover on the transmission. It should seat firmly to the case. Do not force it in place by tightening the cover nuts. If it fails to fit with hand pressure, the cover might need to be replaced. Install two or three nuts and washers to hold the cover in place temporarily, and rotate the clutch release arm. Verify that the clutch pushrod is activated. It’s not a bad idea to check the kicker for smooth operation at this time also. When you are satisfied with the results, button it up.
