When I try to align the bell to engine I get soft and hard spots, cant seem to get the soft spot all the way around. If I leave of the stiffing plates I can get very close, the stiffing plates wont allow movement. those plates will not allow the bell any movement which I think I need.
Question is how do I go about the aligning process to get the proper soft spot?? Leave the stiffners off?? I have left the engine free to move also, still hard and soft spots!! Can`t get the rt combo.

Are you sure its just not high spots in liner from gluing? If you turn the start shaft backwards and its smooth and doesnt feel rough then you have proper alignment. To fix high spots in clutch liner (Usually happens at gap in liner) simply start engine and hold head and blip throttle up to 1/2 thottle quickly once or twice to burn in liner. Will be smooth after that. Liner has tight tolerance to clutch so a slight high spot will act as you described.

Willing to bet its just not quite perfect and a quick burn in will fix it. Let me know how you make out.
