Apologies if I have added confusion I should have typed "Gearbox" sprocket not engine in the above reply. :oops:

Hi, I found a small wire ring inserted inside the spider,(at the deep end of the splines) helped with the clutch chain alignment.

Christian
once you have the correct nut for the clutch . To tighten it engage top gear and with the rear chain fitted
hold the rear brake pedal down then do the nut up

I hope Christian has sorted this by now as his enquiry was more than a year ago (April 2018), but he never said........... :?
