Assemble the clutch and flywheel (not shown here) as you normally would. A good idea is to insert an old transmission input shaft into the crank bushing to make sure all the clutch plates are properly aligned. Also, when attaching the clutch to the crank, Lafferty recommends against the common practice of using Loctite. Like rod and main bolts, when properly torqued, the bolts that hold the clutch to the crankshaft depend on stretch to lock them into place. Using Loctite here and torquing them into place can lead to broken bolts when it's time to remove them. Instead, Lafferty recommends using only some high-pressure lubricant.
