I'm putting a new clutch in my '74 1/2, and I'm having a devil of a time 
getting it to like up on the spline.

Of course I'm using the correct alignment tool to make sure the clutch and 
plate are lined up properly, and I'm using long 5/16" bolts to line up the 
bell housing, but I can't get the clutch plate to line up properly on the 

Before I destroy the clutch plate I'm wondering if anyone on the list has a 
tip for getting this done.  Currently I'm thinking of using the long bolts 
to line the bell housing up, and put a socket on the crank pully to turn the 
clutch and, (hopefully) get it to line up.

Any help appreciated,
