8 friction and 7 steels are good. Honda used 6 and 2 possibly different friction material.

Problem--the shims are in the wrong place. Picture #2.
You mentioned the shims would not go completely on the tapered bolt posts(pic #5)
You put them in after you put placed the pressure plate on so they stopped on the tapered post.
Springs tightened up against shim(pic #5) to bolt head.
Remove the bolts, shims and pressure plate.
Put the springs in, then the shims then the bolts.
Alternate tightening of the bolts..
You may want to try the clutch lever before you put the cover back on.
You may have more lever pull force with the MTC springs vs OEM without using shims..

@Hans&Feet Thanks again for your help. Putting the shims between the bolts and springs fixed my no pressure issue. I did check it before putting everything back together this time..

As always everyone is so helpful on this forum!!
