Sorry Trexsyndrom, we got off topic. I made a new post with a link to yours.

As the upper and lower frame halves are brought together, this end of the shaft slips into the one-way bearing in the center of the clutch shoes, providing vertical alignment of the bell and clutch.
A one way clutch has at least .005 in compensation on the clutches as they ride up the cam surface. It is easy and highly likely that even though the shaft is inside the bearing it could be .003 to .005 off center to the clutch. If the bearing is removed and a plug put in its place than a simple pin will tell you if you are within .0005 of center. Then the assembly becomes a no brainer. Right now it is by guess and by God. Of course people with more experience will have better luck getting this closer the way it is but as I just explained there are ways of making it much easier.

What could be more fun?
