WTH?! I cant get this damn clutch cover aligned right to go back on. I double checked and made sure both dowels are there and correctly placed, and the ideal gear shaft and starter reduction shaft are correctly positioned as well. It just doesn't seem to want to go together again. Is there something I'm missing?

Don't feel bad, when I worked at a Honda shop it took our "senior service tech" like 2 hours to figure out how to put the thing back on. I believe you have to put it on at an angle first then straighten it... I haven't done it myself, but as long as everything is aligned I don't see what would stop it.

take the timing cover off and turn the motor over with a socket wrench while trying to slide the cover on. you can do it yourself but 2 people makes it much easier.

What do you want a pic of, just the internals without the cover on? I guess to make sure I have everything in there right?

Do you happen to remember what angle that was? I've tried a lot and still cant get it.

????
There is response I wasn't expecting. What would that do?
I'm with the other guy what will that do? I'm going to give it a try though cause I've worked on shit enough to know just cause it doesn't seem to make sense doesn't mean it wont work lol.

Thanks for all the help so far guys!!

Got It On

Well when Brad said turn the engine it didn't make much sense when i thought about it. Then i went into the garage and watched wheat happened when u do so. And in observing this i realized that when you do this, it allows the Ideal Gear Shaft to "settle into place" so that it aligns with the hole on the cover. Then like dylan1k said, it has to go on at an angle. If you get it aligned on the lower right dowel, then the rest of the lower cover against the engine, then push on the top right side of the cover it should slip onto the ideal gear shaft and started reduction shafts. Once you feel it do that you can push it all the way on from side to side and top to bottom making sure its on flush all the way around.
Hopefully this helps someone later on, if not i'm just a 'tard and needed a lil more help then most. Either way here is the pic of it installed.

I wish I knew this trick when I did mine. It sucked, bigtime. The Yamaha bond mess was the worsed.

I did finally figure out that the gear was what was holding me up but still getting it to line up was not fun.

Hmmmm, the things you learn.....

I didn't know they had gaskets.

According to the manual, you have to use a "gasket compound"

they dont. i had them made. MUCH better to work with.
