When you received the kit the clutch had it's preload and the pressure plate setup to aid instalation.When you took the cover off you released the preload witch is normal,so as Greg said start the bolts in the cover and tighten evenly until secure enough to use the clutch arm/cam to push in the spring abit and put the flower nut back on then tighten the bolt's some more and repeat until cover is flush it's much easier that way.
Thanks for all the replies, but Greg58, or anyone else that sees this and can help, what do you mean put washers on the clutch shaft? I’m not entire sure where you are suggesting the washers should go so the clutch spring will tighten up. Thanks for the help
JUST KIDDING IT IS FIXED! Thank you guys so much, the cover is fitting on okay now, but how can I check if the clutch is working properly? How exactly is it supposed to work when tuned correctly? Any tips you have?
