Default Tightening clutch basket nut (left hand)

TOTAL case of brain dead today.

Trying to tighten the clutch basket nut in my '97...how the hell do I tighten that while all it does is spin the plates?

II REALLY don't want to try wedging anything in there.
What hurts worse is...I've done this a few times before!
CRS!

Yes, the nut that holds the clutch basket on.

I just ordered a tool from Motion Pro that looks like grip pliers with long jaws and bent in a short leg "L" at the end.
That grips the center hub to keep from spinning as you tighten.
I have both HD and Clymer service manuals and neither addresses this.
Only the engine nut.

That won't work.
You can't tighten this nut with the pressure plate in the way which is the only thing
that would keep the center hub from turning.

Do you have a Factory Manual???


When removing the primary drive assembly (Engine Sprocket, Primary Chain & Clutch Sprocket), the clutch basket is intact - ONLY the release mechanism is removed to gain access to the Sprocket Nut... Using the brass hinge to wedge between the Engine Sprocket & the Clutch Sprocket will keep the fully assembled clutch basket from rotating...

When re-installing, the fully assembled clutch basket (with clutch plates & pressure plate in place) ONLY has the release mechanism removed in order to have access to the Clutch Sprocket Nut...

The Engine Sprocket, Primary Chain & Clutch Sprocket are removed and/or re-installed as a 3-piece assembly...

??? Now ??? If you still have a question, please post a picture and explain in clear and concise language, what you are trying to do...

Been a while since I was in there. But maybe he has removed the clutch basket and needs to tighten the big nut that holds the whole assembly onto the gearbox shaft.

It would be a lot simpler if you would direct me to the page in the manual that you're quoting.
As I clearly stated previously, I have both HD and Clymer manuals.
I also stated it's the nut that holds the clutch basket on.
Regardless, just point me to the correct page and I'll be most appreciative.
I do appreciate your efforts.
