I replaced the dent spring. I received a mtc clutch kit. When I put the clutch outer drum in. The drum seems back far enough. But the two gears are not completely meshed. The outer one seems to be overhanging the primary gear. The book says to go thru a hole and preload the gears? What is that about?. And if you have the step by step putting it back together. Judder spring? Any help here would be great. I want this project over. And how much slack is supposed to be in the water pump chain?
It looks like there is a threaded hole in between the chain. In the manual it shows something there that would tighten slack in the chain.

There is a backlash eliminator on the clutch basket. The gear ring is in fact two marginally sprung apart. A big flat screwdriver and a bit of gentle prising and the two will align and the drum will push all the way back in with ease.

Forget the confusing triumph diagram - I wasted hours studying that too - Then @warp9.9 gave me the screwdriver tip. Don't worry about the pump chain.

This ^^

I use a 6mm iirc ball end allen key, seems it would be less sharp on the back plate.
If you look into the hole the manual tells you to poke into, you'll see the holes need a little levering to align. Lever them to line up and push the basket in that last few mm.

Oil pump chain slack looks normal. It is not adjustable.
Oh and leave out the OEM anti judder spring and accompanying washer when installing the MTC fiber clutch kit. I learned the hard way didn't I @warp9.9

On that pic of the chain, those 6 nubs have to line up, and go into 6 holes in the back of the clutch basket. If not aligned, it will hold the basket out about 1/4" or so.

Then I think you should send it to me. Or you'll hurt that foot.
