If you only remove the star plate and leave the rest of the assembly alone you won't have to worry about the orientation of the pressure plate.
I think we have all broken that lifter plate at some point...
Well I just broke my 3rd lifter plate. I must be very special. Those things cost about $60 and I can only find them in Germany. It will be a month before I can break the next one..... This build is never going to be done....
You must tighten the bolts all the way so that the lifter plate actually seats on the towers. If you didn't get the teeth meshed properly, it will not be possible for the plate to seat on the tower and you likely will snap off one of the corners of the lifter. If you had completely taken apart the clutch assembly, it also would possible to install the pressure plate 90 degrees (or 270 for that matter) out from its original orientation. Installed this way, the teeth on the pressure plate and clutch center cannot line up and again you would snap a corner off of the lifter if you tried to tighten things down all the way. This is probably what many of those who have snapped the lifter assembly have done.
