Clutch re-assemble

    re-assembling the clutch and new plate to my overhauled engine. WSM says to use a specific tool or a spare primary shaft. As I have neither of those, does any one have a good suggestion as to aligning the new clutch plate in the clutch assembly. If not aligned properly you can't get the transmission primary shaft in.

    I was going to cut off a primary shaft from a old tranny I have, but it doesn't have the right number of splines.

    Sunbeam Specialties has a plastic alignment tool that's inexpensive. Some people use a whittled-down broomstick.

    thanks RootesRooter. Your comment about a whittled down broomstick got me thinking.
    Was able to cobble together a 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch copper pipe with a reducer.
    It gave me the one inch OD needed for the splines and the 1/2 inch needed to slip into the flywheel.
    All lined up and together.
