Default Supermiata damper clearance...?

About ti press this thing on and only want to do it once.
After installing the trigger wheel the trigger wheel bolts look awfully close to the timing cover (plastic).

These pics are with it just sitting there not pressed on yet. Anything I have to shave or do before I proceed?

Fitment note:
Use of trigger wheel will require minor trimming of plastic timing cover on exhaust side of block near oil pan to clear trigger wheel bolts

I do dig that I get to use a 18" wrench on a miata. Kinda funny, the mustang behind it makes 2x the power this thing with the EFR will ever make and I never used a 18" wrench on it.

Skip the impact. Use a normal wrench to just press it on.

I pity the next person who rents the installer tool.

I personally wouldn't use an impact wrench to tighten stuff.
