The 'Plate B' is the equivalent of a very thick plain plate, in as much as each side of it is a friction plate. So you can't put another friction plate in there, only a plain plate. One plain plate is too thin to take up the space, so to make up the difference another plain plate is fitted at the pressure plate.
Your 1200 has the lesser of the two evils; a Plate B with both sides having teeth. But it still has the stupid brass rivets holding spring steel straps.
Old Fogey wrote:Eric, stop worrying about a B plate. That just means the normal plain steel plate, of which you need two. Incidently, the same plain plates are used from 75 right through to 87.
Rob, you have it right. You too can stop worrying about the measurement, there is plenty of leeway there and also plenty of adjustment.
Just throw the 'Plate B' damper plate as far as you can, stick one new (or used) plain plate in the middle of the pack, another at the end of the pack against the pressure plate and put it all back together.
