real fast. the reason that I took my clutch out was that it wasn't disengaging all the way and it wasn't the hydraulic part of it. the rivits closer to the surface are not even a 1/16 of an inch from being level with the top of the clutch discs. so i am pretty sure i need a new one. now the pressure plate, the "fingers" look fine. but the PP is all discolored like it was over heated and it looked like there was a few small spots that might be worn more than the rest. i have never looked at a PP before so i don't know if it is supposed to be discolored like that. it looks like brake rotors that i have seen that were warped and over heated. does it sound like any of this could be causing my problem? do i need a new pressure plate?
thanks for all the help

Take a look at a new disk, there is very little difference from rivet head to clutch face on them too.
Look for a clutch rebuilder in your area and take the parts to them for an inspection.
They should be able to advise you.
