Tell me about my clutch fork

Slowly chipping away on my 79 wagon. About had a fit indexing the bellhousing but got it all straightened out. This is my first in depth go at a 4 speed so have a look at my clutch fork. Is the shiny/flat surface where the throw out bearing rides on it normal? The shiny spots made me think it was worn but I have no idea. I can see a space in between the fork and the new McLeod throw out bearing. Should I look for a new fork? To me the flat spots almost look too perfect to be from wear but that’s why I’m asking. Thanks for the help
