A few weeks ago I got my rebuilt pressure plate and new friction materialon the disc. The shop machined my flywheel too.Total cost was $220.00 and 43 of that was the pilot bearing. Turns out the bearing is also found in the older chevy engines too. Here are some pics of before and after.

The $43 quoted for the spigot shaft bearing seems steep. Mine cost around $10 Aust
The round headed screws in the pressure plate fingers look the same as mine and probably came from a Ford.
The key is having them adjusted at the correct height and all equal.
Towards smooth gear changes, money well spent.
I have a diagram for setting the fingers correctly , I will dig it out and add it to the posting. Your screws look a bit too high.

Attached is the diagram I used to set the pressure plate fingers. I set the flywheel, clutch and pressure plate up in my lather and used a dial indicator to adjust the screws for uniform readings. Good luck.
