yes, even took a file to edges to be certain no burres were there. it doesnt appear as if this is a removable key, do you know if it is. really at a loss and it appears ive done all you guys can think of.
it is not on the crankshaft
the problem is the interior shaft in the clutch part that has the key made into it is independant of the clutch part and the pulley part. when you place it up onto the crankshaft it moves and you cant tell where it is in the lineup process. I guess i cannot put the bolt in at all and must get the clutch up onto the shaft in one move, thats what i am trying now.
