Clutch pressure plate

Hello to all Mazda enthusiast!
I have a issue with a pressure plate not disengaging.
So my ques is do someone know at what distance between the plate
and the fly wheel there surfaces touch each other.I mean when you start
to tighten the plate bolts and you start to feel the pressure of the plate(compressing it)what is the distance between the plate and the fly wheel.
I hope i explained it right because my English is not so well.
If there is problem with the explanation i can try to draw it.

Thanks in advance!

Can you describe the situation your car is in? It sounds like you are putting in a new clutch and it's not seating right, is that correct?

Depend on the plate, sometimes my last clutch uses generic pressure plate with act race disk, and when i tighting the 6 pressure plate bolt, it compresses the middle spring arm a little further than i have ever seen. but that doesnt stop it from engaging. as long as the release bearing is pushing against the pressure plate, it should engage and dis engage if the installation was done right.

Thank`s for the reply.
Yes it is a new clutch kit,but it is custom made,and may have little difference
from the OEM one.The plate is re-reinforced,and that is why i ask about the distance.My spring arm is sitting a little further too,but may be tooo further.and
that leaves no space for full dis engagement.
