need some help, advice, video links, anything. installing mids on dyna

i have my mids installed on the easy side (brake), but now i'm having a tough time with the clutch side. i havent been able to find much of any info on how to do this swap. the old threads i have found, dont have working pics any more. there's a video on youtube that shows me how to cut the mounts out of the frame and some other stuff on a very customized dyna...
attached is where i'm at right now.
i removed the linkage from the replacement parts, and i was hoping i could slip the part that's in my hand down behind the primary, and into the hole, but that doesnt seem to work.

i busted the out of my knuckle, so i'm inside now getting some AC and hydration. any help would be really appreciated. i had heard i needed to remove my primary, and i thought it would just be the cover, like i have removed in the pic. if i can just loosen it up or something, that would be very preferable to taking the whole thing off. i'm working on the ground, and my back hates me enough already.
thanks guys

Yep, like I said, compensator, clutch, and then the inner primary has to come out to install mids. Hope you're not paying too much for the job... I would have done it for a 6 pack.

well , a 6 pack is pretty cheap. the guy that's doing it for me is charging 300, and he's also fixing the hacked up wiring on the tail end. seems like a fair deal to me, considering the amount of bs involved in the job.

Ha, I would have fixed that for a 12 pack. I had to build a new rear harness for my dyna 2 years ago. Insulation split and the wires started coming out and rubbing my rear tire. It was one of them days coming back from Gainesville where when I hit the I-75/I-10 interchange that evo screamed all the way back to Tallahassee at 100+mph and bounced off of 5 grand the whole time. Thought the burnt wiring I was smelling wasn't my bike until I stopped for gas.

It took me about 3 hours to build the new harness. On the older evo's that use duetsch connectors, there isn't a whole lot going on back there. I wouldn't think a twin cam would be much different? Either way, $300 aint bad. Does that include gaskets?
