its pretty much just like the manual says...that beind said i ran into the same problem 1st time i did this procedure.

one thing to make sure of..make sure that #1 is not being turned as you tighten #2 to lock it in place.

soemtimes i had more success when the adjuster at the lever wasnt all the way in. if i remember right, not having it all the way in makes it easier to get close, but leaves you less room to fine tune at the lever.

also it helps to have a sense of what is going on with the clutch behind #1. #1 (almost) touches a rod, (the pushrod) which is roughly the same dimensions as a pencil. when that rod is pushed by #1 it pushes against the resistance of the clutch springs to seperate the clutch plates enough for them to disengage. hope i explained that right and it helps out.

i finally got it fixed, it just took a lot of playing with the different adjustments. but your explanation of what is going on with the plates is what i was looking for!! hard to adjust something when you dont really have a grasp on exactly what you're adjusting.. too tight too loose.. much thanks
