Can anyone explain why this must be performed - before I start tearing the clutch out I'd like to know why this needs to be performed (means taking the CKP cover off - new gasket).

What is the purpose of the screwdriver if the gear is not moved?

Where the screwdriver fits, there is like split gear. You need to move the split gear so the clutch basket moves all the way back to reseat it properly if my memory serves me right.

Cheers Woodyeee, I was wondering about this because all the illustrations (except these two when discussing the removal/replacement of the outer basket) in the service manual show the CKP cover still bolted on and not removed. ???

I'll be doing this in about 2 weeks and will figure it out. By the way, it all looks quite simple, but the removal of the CKP cover looks unnecessary (although I'm sure I'm gonna be eating those words as it becomes obvious when time comes).

And I found this:

"there's 2 gears on the crankshaft that mesh with the gear on the outer shell, called 'scissor gears'. They are not aligned with each other and make the clutch outer rather tight to get out and back in. You need to turn the crank until you see a small hole in the gear on the crank, and stick a screwdriver in the hole and then hold tension on the crank to make the 'scissor gears' align with each other, so that you can remove and install the clutch outer"

But, do you turn the crank CW or CCW?

Here is a blow-up - looks so obvious now:

You can see the spring that keeps them apart - item #11: http://www.lingshondaparts.com/honda_mo ... ck_03=1961

I presume the scissor system prevents "backlash" (chatter)???

It doesn't matter which way you turn the crank.
