I'm sorry You haven't had any help,..... before now that is..
#1> Let the Clutch Slave cylinder hang off to the side OUT of the way of you installing JUST the Sprocket cover.....
#2> Install You "Nicky mod. Sprocket cover" now, Taking CARE to get it lined up over the 2 "Location/Line up pins" "I" (do NOT tight hard) at this point... Just enough so You know the cover is seated flat!....
#3> Now install said Hydra. Slave unto the cover,(Linning up the "push rod" into the Slaves Seal, taking care NOT to Damage said seal
) last 2 or 3 LONG bolts, yeah.... Then ALL is good now to finish tightening.!
FYI and FWIW... I had NEVER even had to open the Clutch Res. cover to mess with this, I think this is the FIRST time, I have even seen this question actually`....
This IS Really a piece of Cake job to do, so I'm pretty
confused anyone could have a problem...? Hopefully this Will get You back UP and Running!:rockon
The Push rod,... I'm SURE You made sure it is in the Correct spot-Hole on the other side of the Engine, clutch plate side.. Yeah? IF not, this "IS" Your Problem!
Last thing, YOU Should be able to hold everything up by Hand FLAT, metal to metal,(gasket I know,
) without any screws having to Pull the sprocket cover or Slave cylinder flat!
I Hope this Helps You bmfgsxr,
