Default Tamer II installation help

Hey guys, I know this is a very simple and straightforward install, so pardon my ignorance, but I am a bit confused about the installation instructions in regards to the diagram in my service manual. My bike is a 1973 XLH

Tamer II Installation Instructions

1. Remove outer primary cover to expose clutch
2. Remove clutch pressure plate and spring using oem spring tool or
large gear puller to compress clutch spring
3. Remove clutch plug center of bearing end replace it with our clutch
plug
4. Main input gear in center of the clutch shell is to receive the
bushing, insert it so chamfer is toward you
5. Put some grease in the bushing
6. Re-install pressure plate and spring, tighten the 6 nuts
7. Install outer primary cover and on later models adjust the primary
chain
8. Adjust the clutch as described in the Harley manual
9. Add oil to primary.



For step #3, are they referring to part# 070308 in the below diagram? The diagram below calls it a thrust collar, and the install instructions call it a clutch plug, so I just wanted to be sure.

For step #4, is this bushing replacing another part (if so, which part#?), or is it something new I am just adding in the end of the main input gear?

Thanks!

you are correct at step 3, you are replacing the stockthrust collar with the tamer.
put the bushing into the end of the clutch gear..
check the tamer fit into the clutch gear/mainshaft first..ive seen a few with correct bush to begin with.
the point of the tamer if you look at it is to take place of the thrust collar while stabbing into the shaft/bushing so it supports the basket, yet can still travel in/out with the clutch.
i like them .

Ok so I finally got around to doing this install today, but I can't get the bushing into the end of the clutch gear. It seems just barely to big to fit in. Am I supposed to tap it in with a hammer, or should it slide in easily?

Its a tight press fit. I put a dot of red bearing locker on before tapping it flush with the end of the shaft.

if you don't have access to a press, be sure to put something between the hammer and the bushing so you don't deform the edge of it. try freezing the bushing too, might help a little.

doesn't it go in the throw out bearing and replace the thrust collar??

why would it go past the throwout bearing all the way into the clutch gear ?? ( the collar and bushing being replaced)
i'm curious about this, too. just going with the flow on the bushing install!

supposedly it goes past the bearing and in to the clutch gear so that it can help support the basket to eliminate any unneeded movement, but still be able to move in and out with the clutch.
