    if this is new motor, than clutch may be stuck from sitting - take off cover and pull clutch, if plate moves out & gets loose but clutch is still stuck GENTLY tap with a hammer

    if plate does not move out read about adjusting cable & flower nut
  3. I will try this tomorrow unfortunately am not able to today any other suggestions as well because it is a cheap 80cc Chinese engine kit
  4. also it has some weird small flower nut I tried to remove before but couldn't I had to turn the entire clutch by hand to get my chain on

    if you push clutch arm in by hand, the flower nut gets loose
  6. I pushed in the clutch arm the flower nut doesn't get loose

    if you felt the spring tension working against you when you pushed the arm, that usually means the whole clutch is moving out - you'll need to check that key is in place & clutch hub is properly seated on the shaft - when hub isn't seated, this will be a bit hard to do, but must be done
